On Having a Midnight Tête-à-tête with Hemingway

Midnight Tete-a-tete

If you haven’t seen Woody Allen’s new film “Midnight in Paris,” you must. Where else can you enter into the glorious golden age of Paris in the 1920s, have your manuscript read by Gertrude Stein, dance with Picasso’s mistress, pitch a movie idea to Luis Buñuel, wax poetic with Dali and Man Ray, and be insulted by a macho Hemingway who speaks exactly like his novels: only in a post-real, walking-through-paris-in-the-rain magical moment in the endlessly-entertaining-imagination of Woody Allen.
