Midnight In Paris

 Have any of my faithful bloggy friends seen this movie?  I absolutely LOVED it.  I tried to decide if the fact that Paris is one of my favorite cities influenced this love, but I must say, I do not think so!  The cast was perfect.  Woody Allen wrote it and directed it.  You could see the "Woody" influence all through it. Owen Wilson was comically like Woody in word and actions all through the movie.
 The story went like this;  Gil and Inez are in Paris with her parents.  Their wedding is coming up soon.  They don't seem right for each other somehow. One night he goes wandering through the Paris night.  At midnight a twenties automobile comes by and stops for him and transports him back in time.  He meets Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, and then Hemingway and many other famous artsy people, and oh, I'd better not give away any more of the plot.
There is a remarkable moral at the end about how each era holds wonderfulness.  Even the one we are living in now.  I will own this movie as soon as it becomes available.  I don't think I'll ever get tired of it.  That's just the nerd in me, I guess.

We saw it Tuesday evening. We enjoyed it. What we really enjoyed was seeing Paris since we were just there in June! It was like watching a video of the places we visited. I could definitely see Woody Allen in Owen Wilson's character. Normally Woody would be in it, I felt that part was his!
Owen was awesome.
