Midnight in Paris (2011)

Gil Pender (Owen Wilson) is a screenwriter and aspiring novelist. Vacationing in Paris with his fiancee (Rachel McAdams), he has taken to touring the city alone. On one such late-night excursion, Gil encounters a group of strange -- yet familiar -- revelers, who sweep him along, apparently back in time, for a night with some of the Jazz Age's icons of art and literature. The more time Gil spends with these cultural heroes of the past, the more dissatisfied he becomes with the present.

Zelig (1983)

Interiors (1978)

When dominating interior designer Eve (Geraldine Page) and her husband, Arthur (E.G. Marshall), split after decades of marriage, it comes as a shock to their adult daughters -- tightly wound author Renata (Diane Keaton), struggling actress Joey (Mary Beth Hurt) and flighty Flyn (Kristin Griffith) -- as does Arthur's new romance with a vibrant artist (Maureen Stapleton). This was writer-director Woody Allen's first dramatic feature, and the first of his films in which he did not act.
