I saw Midnight in Paris because of continuous peer pressure. Thank goodness for that. Without it, I would have missed something very special. Bring your whole family to this one, even the Woody Allen haters. It’s hard not to be impressed by the balance of magical charm and subtle authenticity Woody Allen and company bring to this film. The casting is pitch perfect. Wilson in particular manages to create one of his best performances in years. And if you loath laughing, please, stay home. Everyone else—-Watch it! This may just be the best movie of the year.
