Set in the gorgeous days of the Cote d’Azur in 1928, Woody’s 44th film is also one of his best. It opens with a quick visit to a theatrical performance by an acerbic, irritable and impossibly demanding Chinese illusionist in elaborate Oriental wigs, makeup and scarlet silks, with the stage name Wei Ling Soo. He is in fact a London fraud named Stanley Crawford, played to the hilt by Mr. Firth, who creates some magic of his own in one of the most devastatingly handsome appearances of his career. Supremely arrogant, snobbish and superior, Stanley specializes in debunking myths of the occult and exposing all the fakes who practice it, from card sharks to the pope. When he hears about an American clairvoyant named Sophie Baker (Emma Stone) who has invaded the chateau of the Catledge family from Pittsburgh, employed to conduct séances for the rich and gullible widow (Jacki Weaver) that will bring her closer to the spirit of her late industrialist husband, Stanley cuts short his world tour as Wei Ling Soo and heads for the Mediterranean to save the Catledges from the clutches of this venomous psychic, stopping for a brief vacation with his favorite Aunt Vanessa (a rapturous Eileen Atkins) in Provence.

“A master stroke of enchantment from one of the few legitimate cinematic geniuses of the modern cinema, with a nimble and tender performance of enormous elegance and charm by Colin Firth that is heart-meltingly romantic.”
-REX REDD, NEW YORK OBSERVER

“A high-spirited bauble that goes down easy thanks to fleet comic pacing, a surfeit of ravishing Cote d'Azur vistas and the genuinely reactive chemistry of stars Colin Firth and Emma Stone.”
-SCOTT FOUNDAS, VARIETY

"Breezy and funny and perfectly pleasant"
-CHRIS NASHAWATY, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
