Writer/Director Woody Allen is back again with another typical Woody Allen affair! His new film titled Cafe Society stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in 1930s Hollywood. The film looks to follow the usual path of Woody Allen films as Eisenberg plays a man who goes somewhere to do something and meets and falls in love with a girl or multiple girls who are out of his league. The film actually looks pretty good and appears to be the first Woody Allen film I've wanted to see in a very long time as I'm a diehard fan of Jesse Eisenberg, the dude is extremely talented, his Lex Luthor in BVS aside. I personally can't wait to see this film.
The film also stars Blake Lively and Steve Carell, among others. Check out the first trailer below and then sound off in the comments section with your thoughts.
Here's the unofficial synopsis:
"A young man arrives in Hollywood during the 1930s hoping to work in the film industry. There, he falls in love, and finds himself swept up in the vibrant café society that defined the spirit of the age."
Cafe Society is opening Cannes Film Festival in a couple of weeks and is set to hit theaters on August 12th.
