Woody Allen Writes, Directs and Stars in 'To Rome with Love' Trailer
After last year's charming Best Picture nominee Midnight in Paris, I think there's plenty of anticipation for Woody Allen's next overseas venture in the form of his new ensemble romantic comedy To Rome with Love. The film marks Allen's first return to the big screen as an actor since his own 2006 film Scoop, and he's joined by a stellar cast that includes Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Penelope Cruz, Greta Gerwig, Roberto Benigni and more. The film follows a number of people in Italy, some American, some Italian, some residents, some visitors, and the romances and adventures they get into. Watch below!
Here's the first trailer for Woody Allen's To Rome with Love, originally from Yahoo:
Woody Allen writes and directs To Rome with Love as his 42nd feature film, and his first big screen acting role since 2006's Scoop. The film tells the story about a number of people in Italy, some American, some Italian, some residents, some visitors, and the romances and adventures and predicaments they get into whilst in the great Italian city. Sony Pictures Classics will be releasing To Rome With Love starting on June 22nd this summer and just might show up at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival before that. Looking good?

"The kid’s a communist, the father’s a mortician… does the mother run a leper colony?" That's pretty hilarious!

Hmm. Yeah. This might work.

The Woodman is unstoppable.

Woody has made some great films, but it would nice if he could manage to cast someone that wasn't white for once. Go look at his imdb page, shit is whiter than a Mitt Romney fundraiser.

Penelope Cruz is the whitest of them all. Or is she?

So he's cast one person who is possibly not white. In a 47 year career. Outstanding.
Lebowski on Apr 4, 2012
But why should he cast someone that is not white if it doesn't serve his stories? I don't get it, should he just hire someone to throw some diversity into his work? That's silly and makes no sense whatsoever.

to be fair, she's been cast twice in his movies. The other being Vicky Christina Barcelona; and if you're including her as non-white then you could make the argument for Javier Bordem who was also in that.

I am Italian and I feel honored. Woody still got it, he proved it with Midnight in Paris and so I'm excited for this one! I just love it when he's in the movie, he's so funny 🙂

1. Penelope Cruz is spanish and therefore white (given that race is a social construct and the American habit to classify everyone with spanish as his first language as non-white regardless of his ancestry is stupid). 2. The Euro is worth more than a Dollar so Woody`s IQ should "logically" (?) be higher in Dollar 🙂

The euro is worth more than the dollar, so when counting it in euro's, it's much more, but when converting it to dollars, it's less. I think that's the joke they were making.

Looks good but, I can't entirely say I understand what the movie is about.
