Beautifully shot, although it felt a little "Faux" '30's. There are times when it seems as if Woody is making the same movie time after time, reminding us that love, whatever that is, never works out. We see so many of the same themes --Hollywood vs NYC,-- Awkward young man--who still gets the beautiful girl--- it just seems like he sometimes plugs these elements in, varies the importance of them to the plot, and then rolls camera.
That being said, Kristen Stewart shows unexpected acting chops in this one--nice to see her tackle a roll with this level of reality in it. Reminded me of many of Allen's leading ladies through the years. Jesse Eisenberg does a credible Woody Allen impersonation, and Steve Carell handles his part of the middle aged man getting a trophy wife with out judgement, only guilt. The writing for this character wasn't all that nuanced, but Carell pulls it off well.
Overall, a good watch as a diversion.
