This movie was set in the 1920’s and is about a magician named Stanley Crawford (played by Colin Firth), who believes that magic is fake and a sham until he meets a medium named Sophie (played by Emma Stone). Upon meeting her, he begins to wonder if she is the real deal, while also somewhat beginning to fall in love. The romantic/drama has one of the more interesting plots compared to other movies within the same genre, with characters that are multi-layered and more subtle plot points. I did find some scenes kind of unnecessary and awkward, but the overall movie was pretty enjoyable. I would rate this movie 3.5/5 stars.

Colin Firth & Emma Stone portrayed characters well. I don't like Woody Allen... but I enjoyed this movie. In honesty, nice to view once... with the family.

Like many Woody Allen films, I have no idea where it's going but I enjoy the ride. And there's Colin Firth and Simon McBurney.

Loved the movie. Woody Allen is still great. I love Colin Firth in just about all his movie.

In a word: twaddle. Very pretty to look at twaddle at times, but twaddle nonetheless. As someone else mentioned, the casting of Stone as Sophie seemed a misstep. For one thing, she's almost thirty years Firth's junior which may explain the total lack of chemistry. The reviewer in the New York times described the movie as "the dutiful recitation of themes and plot points conducted by a squad of costumed actors." That pretty much sums it up.

It was an enjoyable film to watch. Loved the scenery and the cars of the period. Not a real strong story but certainly not weak.

some witty dialogue (funny banter), stupid plot and premise, romantic period piece

While I love 1920s-themed books & movies, and Colin Firth and Emma Stone are 2 of my fave actors, I just didn't see any real chemistry between them. I enjoyed the movie though.

Another excellent, entertaining movie from Woody Allen. Maybe not his best but compared to the rest of Hollywood fluff .....
