Oh my gosh - this movie is just swoonful! If you love poets and Paris, artists, time travel, and vintage fashion, this movie is for you!
The first few minutes are scenes of Paris, and then the story goes on to be about a writer holidaying in Paris with his fiance and her parents, while he tries to get some writerly inspiration for his first novel.
He happens to find a way into the 1920s, where he meets such literary and artistic greats as Dali, Hemingway, F.Scott Fitzgerald and Cole Porter. My heart jumped each time he met one of these geniuses, it was so exciting!
Don't be put off by the idea of Owen Wilson playing the main character. I know he generally acts in throwaway comedies, but he is actually perfect for this role, in a Woody Allen nerdy kind of way.
Rachel McAdams plays the part of the bitchy fiance to a T. There are feature appearances by some of my faves, including Adrien Brody and Kathy Bates.
Midnight in Paris is a magical masterpiece, that will have you wanting to walk through Paris in the rain!
