‘To Rome With Love’ Trailer: Yep, It’s A Woody Allen Movie
The first trailer for Woody Allen‘s “To Rome With Love” has arrived and it’s as Woody Allen-y as you would hope. Jokes about Communism, misery, infidelity, intelligence, sexually adventurous brunettes, and nebbishes abound, as do a pair of big-screen revivals: Allen himself and Roberto Benigni.
In “To Rome With Love,” a quasi-omnibus tale of a bunch of Americans and Italians living and loving in Italy, Allen appears in front of the camera for the first time since “Scoop” in 2006. The good news: He hasn’t lost one smidgen of comic timing, as evidenced by his delightful repartee with nominal Allen regular, Judy Davis. Also: this looks a lot better than “Scoop”!
As for Benigni, the former Best Actor winner last appeared onscreen in “The Tiger and the Snow” in 2005; in “Love,” he plays an Italian under some heavy media scrutiny.
Starring Allen and Benigni as well as Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz (as an Italian prostitute), Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page and Greta Gerwig, “To Rome With Love” arrives in theaters on June 22. Allen’s last film was “Midnight in Paris,” which won him a Best Original Screenplay Oscar and earned $148 million worldwide at the box office.
