Sony Pictures Classics have revealed that they will release on Blu-ray Woody Allen’s love letter to the French capital Midnight in Paris (2011), starring Owen Wilson (The Darjeeling Limited), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes), and Kurt Fuller (The Pursuit of Happyness). Earlier this year, the film had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
Midnight in Paris is a romantic comedy set in Paris about a family that goes there because of business, and two young people who are engaged to be married in the Fall have experiences there that change their lives. It’s about a young man’s great love for a city, Paris, and the illusion people have that a life different from theirs would be much better.
