With Woody Allen’s You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger premiering at Cannes last week, Sony Pictures Classics has released over 20 high resolution images from the upcoming movie. Since the studio has yet to release a trailer, this is a great way to check out a bit more from the film. While the film didn’t get rave reviews at Cannes, I’m still excited to see anything from Woody Allen as I always find something to enjoy in his movies. In addition to the images, SPC has also released a very detailed synopsis. Check out everything after the jump. You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger stars Naomi Watts, Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto, Gemma Jones and it gets released stateside on September 23.
Woody Allen’s “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” follows a pair of married couples, Alfie (Anthony Hopkins) and Helena (Gemma Jones), and their daughter Sally (Naomi Watts) and husband Roy (Josh Brolin), as their passions, ambitions, and anxieties lead them into trouble and out of their minds. After Alfie leaves Helena to pursue his lost youth and a free-spirited call girl named Charmaine (Lucy Punch), Helena abandons rationality and surrenders her life to the loopy advice of a charlatan fortune teller. Unhappy in her marriage, Sally develops a crush on her handsome art gallery owner boss, Greg (Antonio Banderas), while Roy, a novelist nervously awaiting the response to his latest manuscript, becomes moonstruck over Dia (Freida Pinto), a mystery woman who catches his gaze through a nearby window. Despite these characters’ attempts to dodge their problems with pipe dreams and impracticable plans, their efforts lead only to heartache, irrationality, and perilous hot water. Taking its title from the prediction fortune tellers use to beguile their marks, “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” illustrates with wry humor how easy it is for our illusions to make fools of us all.
