The first trailer for Woody Allen’s To Rome with Love has gone online. Per the synopsis: “The film is comprised of four separate vignettes and tells the story of a number of people in Italy—some American, some Italian, some residents, some visitors—and the romances and adventures and predicaments they get into.” The vignette style has its advantages and disadvantages, and I can already tell from the trailer that there will most likely be more than a few stories that could test my patience. Nevertheless, Allen himself is a standout in this trailer, as is the story involving Jesse Eisenberg, Alec Baldwin and Ellen Page. The same can’t be said for Penelope Cruz or Robert Benigni‘s stories, both of which veer towards the farcical. Those looking for a Rome take on Midnight in Paris will be sorely disappointed, as To Rome with Love looks to be much more of a straightforward comedy. I’m a big fan of Allen’s, so I’m really hoping that his vignette pic delivers. He’s got an impeccable cast to work with, so fingers crossed.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Judy Davis, Alison Pill, and Greta Gerwig. To Rome with Love opens on June 22nd.
