Woody Allen's Café Society Does Fairly Well at the Cannes Film Festival

Woody Allen’s latest movie about the 1930s Hollywood receive a warm response at the Cannes Fil Festival.

The Cannes Film Festival which is currently underway right now opened Woody Allen’s Café Society during its 69th edition. At the end of the movie, the audience gave the movie a three-minute standing ovation which might be considered a great omen for other filmmakers but for Woody Allen it was not enough.

Woody Allen who has received high praises for some of his previous projects at the Cannes Film Festival might even consider the ovation as a warm response. 

Café Society has already released a trailer for the movie. The trailer features Jesse Eisenberg as Bobby whose mother sends him to Hollywood to hang out with her brother played by Steve Carell.

Steve’s character Phil has his own theories and philosophies about Hollywood and the rest are expressed throughout the trailer expressed by other people. Amid that Phil entrusts his secretary Vonnie played by Kristen Stewart to take care of his nephew.

We see glimpses of Bobby’s trip to Hollywood which he summarizes in a brief statement on a phone call with his brother that he is half bored and half fascinated. Bobby tells Vonnie that his brother Ben is trying to get him to run a night club with him. We see that Ben is not the nice kind of guy but a thug who believes in throwing people in wet cement and beating them up.

Bobby and Vonnie go around Hollywood and he confesses his affection for her but she tells him that she is seeing someone. We see Anna Camp and Blake Lively in various scenes and Bobby still coming back to Vonnie with some heavy jazz music playing in the back. 

The trailer gives us a glimpse in a rather loud and pompous life of Hollywood back in the 1930s which Woody Allen has written and directed himself and while many people will find it exuberating, the Cannes audience gave it a warm reception. The film is due to release to the general public in July where its fate will be sealed.
