Ahead of the US release of Woody Allen’s latest comedy Cafe Society [see our review here], three new clips have arrived online entitled ‘Veronica’, ‘Phil takes a phone call’, and ‘Mexican Restaurant’. In each clip we see Bobby (Jesse Eisenberg) interact with a different character from the film. The first clip sees him at a jazz bar with Veronica (Blake Lively), the second clip sees him in Phil’s (Steve Carell) office, and the third is of him sat at a Mexican restaurant with Vonnie (Kristen Stewart).
Set in the 1930s, Woody Allen’s bittersweet romance CAFÉ SOCIETY follows Bronx-born Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) to Hollywood, where he falls in love, and back to New York, where he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life.
Centering on events in the lives of Bobby’s colorful Bronx family, the film is a glittering valentine to the movie stars, socialites, playboys, debutantes, politicians, and gangsters who epitomized the excitement and glamour of the age.
Bobby’s family features his relentlessly bickering parents Rose (Jeannie Berlin) and Marty (Ken Stott), his casually amoral gangster brother Ben (Corey Stoll); his good-hearted teacher sister Evelyn (Sari Lennick), and her egghead husband Leonard (Stephen Kunken). For the hooligan Ben, there are no questions that can’t be answered with brute force, but the others are more likely to ponder deeper matters, like right and wrong, life and death, and the commercial viability of religion. Seeking more out of life, Bobby flees his father’s jewelry store for Hollywood, where he works for his high-powered agent uncle Phil (Steve Carell).
