Once again, Woody Allen turns his attention away from his beloved Manhattan as he sets up his upcoming romantic comedy in Rome, Italy.
Woody Allen’s obsession with New York City has been highlighted throughout his cinematic career, with his making of movies like Manhattan and Annie Hall.
However, in the last decade or so, the director has focused his attention on other famous cities around the world, with films like Vicky Cristina In Barcelona and Midnight In Paris. Now, Allen’s backpacking adventure continues with his newest film, To Rome With Love.
The cast of Allen’s new film includes Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Penelope Cruz, Roberto Benigni and Allen himself.
“It’s a broad comedy, not a romantic comedy, of various tales interwoven. I’m one of them, in one of them. All the parts are quite significant, there are no cameos. There just happened to be a part that I could play. I can’t play the love interest anymore, which is tremendously frustrating. My wife and myself go to Rome because our daughter is going to marry an Italian boy that she met there, and we go over to meet him and meet his family, and what ensues. The film is very broadly funny,” Allen said about the upcoming movie.
The film premiered in Italy on April 13th and will be released in the United States on June 22nd. To watch the official trailer, click below.
