Thoughts on Cafe Society


“And so on a sun drenched day”… The narrator of this film was one of many excellent attributes this film had. “Half bored half fascinated” is what the main says Robert, or Bobby, about how he is feeling. But I felt no boredom, just wonder and fascination. This movie is a gem. The style is so unique proved in the quote, “Life is a comedy, written by a sadistic comedy writer”… said Bobby in one of many brilliant quotes throughout this film. From start to finish, this movie did not disappoint in the slightest. It captured the 1930s era perfectly. Jessie Eisenburg is so clever, witty, and quirky, he was born to play this role. It screamed old Hollywood glamour. Steve Carell was unlike I ever saw him, brilliant in a new way. The style and cinematography is unmatched by any movie in recent memory. This was easily one of my favorite movies of the summer. It wasn’t another of the same. It was special and its unique flavor will stay with me for a long time to come. The love plot was very crazy, but this movie really worked on so many different levels. Kristen Stewart and Jessie Eisenburg were made to play opposite one another in this film. Her performance proved that actors grow. She grew leaps and bounds under the creative eye of Woody Allen. It is truly genius. Not to be missed! See, Cafe Society the journey from New York to L.A. in the glamorous 1930s and back to New York. Bobby (Eisenburg) is a remarkable apart of the puzzle that is cafe society, a name from how he and his brother run a club. I don’t want to give too much away. See it for yourself, and you’ll see. Cafe society is Woody Allen and all actors and others involved in a masterpiece.
