Acclaimed magician Stanley Crawford (Academy Award Winner® Colin Firth*) dazzles his audiences with feats of supernatural amazement. But when it comes to the inexplicable, Stanley is a dedicated skeptic. Enter Sophie Baker (Emma Stone), psychic, soothsayer, and stunning seductress. As Stanley and Sophie embark on misadventures up and down the French Riviera, will they discover proof of a world beyond the laws of physics or have they fallen under the sway of a more earthly chemistry? Woody Allen pulls the strings with precision in this enchanting romantic comedy that explores the realm between what's understood in our minds and what's known in our hearts. *Colin Firth, Academy Award® Winner, The King’s Speech, Best Actor, 2010

Critics Consensus: While far from a failure, Magic in the Moonlight is too slight to stand with Woody Allen's finest work.

Mostly mild 1920s-set Woody Allen comedy has charisma.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Magic in the Moonlight sticks pretty closely to the typical Woody Allen comedic formula, with an incongruous pairing and characters tossing bon mots and waxing philosophical in a lovely location (this time, the south of France in the 1920s). Teens may be intrigued by the casting of Emma Stone, but some of the themes/plot threads -- the existence of God and an afterlife, the possibility of true love -- are a little mature (and likely uninteresting) for younger viewers. There's little mild swearing ("hell") and some sharp insults. Expect period accurate smoking and drinking, some kisses, and a suggestive comment or two. The main character, a Caucasian man, performs using a broad, dated stereotypically Asian persona, a practice that would be seen as inappropriate today but was in line with 1920s trends.
