Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, May 29th at 7:20p for Midnight in Paris at the Coolidge Corner Theatre . Look for Howard wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams star as a young engaged couple traveling to Paris with her parents on a business trip in Woody Allen’s new romantic comedy. Once in Paris, however, this couple must confront the fact that perhaps the life that they are living is an illusion.
Gil (Wilson) is a man who is comfortable with the basic pleasures of every-day life, but when he and his fiancee arrive in Paris, Inez (McAdams) is swept off her feet by the charm of the city, including a visit by an old acquaintance, Paul (Michael Sheen). As Gil becomes the curmudgeon of the group, not wanting to take part in the Parisian night-life, he ends up taking midnight strolls along the streets of Paris, alone, and finds a completely new twist on life. Wanting to find out where her fiance goes at night, Inez and her father hire a private detective, but when he goes missing after following Gil on one of his midnight strolls, is the marriage in trouble?
