Plot Summary

Set in the 1920s on the opulent and idyllic Riviera in the south of France, Woody Allen’s Magic in the Moonlight is an enchanting romantic comedy starring Colin Firth and Emma Stone. The film follows cynical and arrogant Englishman Stanley (Firth), a master illusionist who is invited to the Catledge Family mansion to unmask a possible swindle involving an alluring young clairvoyant named Sophie (Stone). At first, Stanley is confident he can expose Sophie as a fraud in no time. But as he witnesses her accomplish numerous supernatural feats, Stanley begins to question his whole rational worldview – if Sophie’s powers are real, anything could be possible. Charming, funny and featuring terrific performances, Magic in the Moonlight delves into the very heart of our belief in something more, with a twist you won’t see coming.
