Dir: Woody Allen | USA | 1979 | 96 mins
Cast: Woody Allen, Mariel Hemingway, Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep
Woody Allen’s timeless comedy-drama, a black-and-white love letter to New York – with its beguiling opening shots of the city accompanied by George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue – remains a landmark in 20th century cinema. Manhattan stars Allen himself as frustrated television writer Isaac, a twice-divorced malcontent facing middle age alone after his wife, Jill (Meryl Streep), leaves him for a woman. Dating beautiful but youthful high-school student Tracy (Mariel Hemingway), Isaac begins to wonder if he and writer Mary (Diane Keaton) might make a better fit.
