IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
If you can still stomach a Woody Allen movie despite some horrific accusations against him being brought back into the spotlight, then you just may well be enchanted by the filmmaker’s willingness to still make movies that aren’t half bad (most of the time, anyway).
