Don’t get your hopes up too much with this Tall, Dark Stranger--–while this latest effort from the prolific occasional expatriate is a vast improvement over Whatever Works, it’s still a minor entry in the Woody Allen oeuvre. The assorted characters in this London-based opus are all in the midst of questioning their life choices or in the aftermath of having made some poor ones. Anthony Hopkins has left his wife to marry a much younger female who enjoys “the good life,” one which Hopkins is hardpressed to supply-- either financially or physically. Meanwhile Hopkins’ daughter Naomi Watts is unhappily married to a creatively stalled author (Josh Brolin) who has his eye on the comely–and engaged-- lass across the way (Frida Pinto). While all this is going on, Hopkins’ ex-wife Gemma Jones) has been consulting a psychic who leads Jones on the path to emotional and spiritual fulfilment–even if it means tossing a few curve balls in the process.
