Woody Allen comedy about the anxieties, ambitions and romantic misfortunes of a pair of married couples. The brilliant cast includes Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts, Anthony Hopkins and Antonio Banderas.
After Alfie (Hopkins) leaves Helena (Gemma Jones) to pursue his lost youth and a free-spirited call girl (Lucy Punch), Helena abandons rationality and surrenders her life to the loopy advice of a charlatan fortune teller. Unhappy in her marriage, Sally (Watts) develops a crush on her handsome art gallery owner boss, Greg (Banderas), while Roy (Brolin), a novelist nervously awaiting the response to his latest manuscript, becomes moonstruck over Dia (Freida Pinto), a mystery woman who catches his gaze through a nearby window. Their attempts to dodge life's problems, with pipe dreams and impracticable plans, lead to heartache, irrationality, and perilous hot water.
