MANHATTAN (1979)

It's complicated: neurotic New York comedy writer Woody Allen, recently divorced after his wife Meryl Streep leaves him for a woman, is currently dating 17-year-old schoolgirl Mariel Hemingway. But then he falls for Diane Keaton, the mistress of his best friend. New York City — elegantly shot in widescreen black-and-white by Gordon Willis, with George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" as the score — has never been presented more affectionately. DIR/SCR Woody Allen; SCR Marshall Brickman; PROD Charles H. Joffe, Jack Rollins. U.S., 1979, b&w, 96 min. RATED R
