  1. Enjoy reconnecting with this movie:

    Manhattan is a 1979 American romantic comedy-drama film directed by Woody Allen about a twice-divorced 42-year-old comedy writer who dates a 17-year-old girl before eventually falling in love with his best friend’s mistress. The movie was written by Allen and Marshall Brickman, who had also successfully collaborated on Annie Hall. Manhattan was filmed in black-and-white and 2.35:1 widescreen.

    The film was nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actress (Mariel Hemingway) and Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen. It also won the BAFTA Award for Best Film. The film was #46 on American Film Institute’s “100 Years…100 Laughs”. In 2001, the United States Library of Congress deemed the film “culturally significant” and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.

  2. Meryl is one of my favorite actresses of all time. She’s been in great serious dramas but even in comedies like She Devil and Death Becomes Her. My favorite modern film of hers is “The Devil Wears Prada.” She nailed that one at Vogue!!!!
