Woody Allen has followed up his most recent Oscar-winning love letter to a romantic European city (Midnight in Paris) with yet another love letter to another romantic European city in To Rome with Love.
Directing an all-star cast that includes Alec Baldwin, Ellen Page, Penelope Cruz (who nabbed an Oscar for her work in the famed writer/director’s other other European love letter Vicky Cristina Barcelona), and Allen-esque-neurotic-in-training Jesse Eisenberg, Allen once again portals his trademark wit (“You’re figuring it in Euros, in dollars it’s much less”) through a lens of the intellectual upper class. Oh, and the film ushers in the return of Roberto Benigni. Try to contain your excitement!
Watch the trailer for the film, which was originally titled the arguably less palatable The Bop Decameron, here:
To Rome with Love arrives in America on June 22.
