"You suffer from despair." Another year, another film from iconic writer and director Woody Allen. This summer brings his latest film, The Irrational Man, to theaters, but not before premiering at Cannes Film Festival in May. Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone star in the film that follows a small town college philosophy professor (Phoenix) in existential crisis who gives his life new purpose when he enters into a relationship with his student (Stone). As with nearly all of Allen's films, the lead character seems to be a variation on the director himself, but both Phoenix and Stone have their own narration throughout. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Woody Allen's The Irrational Man, officially on YouTube:
The Irrational Man is written and directed by Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris, Blue Jasmine, Mahattan, Annie Hall). The story follows a Rhode Island philosophy professor (Joaquin Phoenix of Inherent Vice, The Master) who is searching for new energy and purpose. While doing so, he gets involved with an unhappily married science professor (Parker Posey) and an eager student (Emma Stone of Birdman), the latter of which may end up giving his life the purpose for which he's been searching. Sony Pictures Classics is taking the film to the Cannes Film Festival in May and it hits theaters later this summer beginning on July 17th.
