“A master stroke of enchantment from one of the few legitimate cinematic geniuses of the modern cinema...”
Rex Reed, New York Observer
Like a good friend we see just once a year, here’s another Woody
Allen comedy. It’s time to meet Stanley (Colin Firth), a sceptical
expert in illusions hired to unmask a crook. However, when no

beliefs in logic and science?



Jersey Boys

by Clint Eastwood

starring > John Lloyd Young, Vincent Piazza

duration > 134 min.

“Jersey Boys tells a familiar story, yes -- but rarely toldthis well and with this much heart and soul.”
Lou Lumenick, New York Post 

Iconic film star Clint Eastwood directs an unusual film based on the musical of the same name that tells the troubled story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons during the 1960s. Originating from the part of New Jersey least popular with tourists, we get to see the relationships of these five youngsters,
from obscurity to stardom, with the customary in-fighting.
