Woody Allen’s ‘Match Point’ first PECC of 2006!

‘Match Point’ screens for PECC at the Cinema Moliere, Pezenas on Friday January 6 at 20H45

Tuesday 20 December 2005, by Sarah Ridout

’Match Point’ stars Scarlett Johansson, Jonathon Rhys-Meyers and Emily Mortimer and is the first film Allen has directed in London.

In his recent interview with Allen in ‘Vanity Fair’ Hollywood insider / historian Peter Biskind reflected on Allen’s 35 movies and thought ‘Match Point’ was worthy of inclusion in the 10 best ever Woody Allen movies (he included ‘Manhattan’, ‘Annie Hall’, ‘Broadway Danny Rose’, and ‘Husbands and Wives’).

Critic Roger Ebert calls ‘Match Point’, one of the five best films of Allen’s career with an ``ingenious plot’’ about ’’social climbing and snobbery.’’ Please note - it is a dubbed a morality thriller not a comedy!!

The very supportive CRAIE will be closed December 24 -January 1 for the festive season. Please note this so you don’t waste a trip to buy tickets!

I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thanks also to the many of you who have sent me emails of appreciation and support for starting PECC it is great to have positive feedback. I started PECC because I thought there was a need for regular movies in English and you have shown that was the case. Hope to see you at ‘Match Point’ in 2006!


PS Thanks to the over 115 of you who came to ‘Broken Flowers’! For details on how to buy tickets, prices etc please see earlier articles.
