What a delight
August 22, 2011 - Heather Ziegler
It's not often you can see a movie with your elderly mother and local clergy in the audience and not be embarrassed by the language or sex scenes but it is possible. Towngate Theater screened a lovely gem of a movie this past weekend called "Midnight in Paris." I didn't even care who was in the film (Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams are the headliners but the real stars are the set, the cast of characters and the storyline) because it was such a fun and funny movie as well as just plain charming. I don't care for Woody Allen as a person but this was his production and it really was wonderful. It was just what was needed after a hectic work week. The story focused on a writer and his fiancee who were in Parish with her parents for a few days. The writer was trying to put the finishing touches on a novel he was writing. While his shallow, snob of a fiancee was out galavanting with others at night, the writer was walking the streets of Paris, sort of exploring ideas for his book. It was on these magical nights that some truly great movie moments happen. If you are a lover of a good story, gorgeous scenery (I felt as though I have really seen Paris now) and costumes, laughter and more, make it a point to see this movie at the main theaters or On Demand or wherever you can find it. The only "f" word in the movie is "fun."
