Sony Pictures Classics has released the first Magic in the Moonlight trailer.  Woody Allen‘s romantic comedy is set in the south of France in the 1920s and stars Colin Firth as an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle, as a young woman (Emma Stone) claims to be able to communicate with spirits.  As he spends more time with the girl, however, he starts to wonder if she may not be a fraud after all.  The film’s “supernatural comedy” leanings aren’t wholly dissimilar from Allen’s approach to Midnight in Paris, and with Firth and Stone as the two leads, there’s an unending amount of charm on display.  In short, the film looks to be an absolute delight.

Hit the jump to watch the Magic in the Moonlight trailer.  The film also stars Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney, and Jacki WeaverMagic in the Moonlight opens in limited release July 25.
