We share some of our favourites from Woody Allen!
“One of Woody Allen’s great films. Indeed, he makes nary a misstep from beginning to end in charting the amorous affiliations of three sisters and their men over a two-year period.” Variety
“Sharply written and extremely well-acted, Allen’s serio-comic ensemble-driven saga about one large neurotic family, a huge artistic and commercial hit at the time, is arguably his last great picture.” Emmanuel Levy
From Allen’s ‘mid-period’, identifiable by the role of then-muse Mia Farrow, this is Allen’s third great love offering to his perpetual muse, Manhattan. Hannah and Her Sisters concerns the lives, loves, and infidelities among a tightly-knit artistic clan. The film begins and ends during the family’s traditional Thanksgiving dinner, filmed in Farrow’s actual New York apartment. Unbilled cameos are contributed by Sam Waterston as one of Wiest’s brief amours and Tony Roberts as one of Allen’s friends. Hannah and Her Sisters collected Oscars for Michael Caine, Dianne Wiest, and Woody Allen’s screenplay.
