City of Love Part 3

The last movie I picked is one of my favorites this year. It is also happens to be nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture. It's "Midnight in Paris" starring Owen Wilson.


Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parent' business trip. Gil is a sucessful Hollywood writer but is struggeling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920's was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight and discovers what could be the ultimate source if inspiration for writing. Gil's daily walks at midnight in Paris could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he's about to marry.

This movie is obviously not set in the 50's but it is in Paris and it will make you fall in love with the City. It's a Woody Allen movie and it is just sooo good.

Ok! I finished "Nine Coaches Waiting" and I really liked it! I could imagine Rock Hudson, Grace Kelly, and Some of those stars in it. It madee me want to read some more of her books. I give it **** stars.
