You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger


You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger
Woody Allen remains in England for his latest examination of the human heart. In essence a set of two romantic quadrangles, we start off with an aging mom and dad. Dad has something of a post-mid-life-crisis fling with a young floozy, which upsets mom, who seeks consolation elsewhere. Meanwhile their daughter and her husband are also having problems, and both seek warm arms away from home, all of which leads to much opportunity for Allen to once again cover his favourite territory.
