Midnight in Paris
Gil (Owen Wilson) and Inez (Rachel McAdams) are engaged to be married, on holidays in Paris with her parents. They are officially in love, but maybe what Gil really loves is Paris in the springtime. He's a successful yet dissatisfied Hollywood screenwriter who still harbours the dream of someday writing a good novel and joining the pantheon of American writers whose ghosts seem to linger in the very air he breathes. Gil is besotted with the Paris of the 1920s, when his heroes F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway traded dry martinis and even drier barbs with the likes of Gertrude Stein and Pablo Picasso. Inez and her family, on the other hand, couldn't care less.
Gil is quick to admit, that he's a nostalgist who feels like he was born in the wrong time. The past seems much more exciting than the moment he lives in. Exploring Paris on his own, Gil embarks on an enchanted journey to discover the streets alive with hidden wonders that will change his life forever.
Midnight In Paris' wonderful cast alongside Wilson and McAdams includes Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen, Marion Cotillard and Adrien Brody, who delight in amusing and smartly written scenes. An exhilarating valentine to the City of Light, Midnight in Paris is a sheer pleasure to watch - beguiling, magical, thoughtful and very funny, and a paean to dreamers and romantics everywhere.
