Irrational Man

Playing Through 9/3 Only

"Once again proves Allen's best late-period work." - Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald

America's most prolific filmmaker is at it again. Here is Woody Allen's 45th opus. Neither a drama nor a comedy, but a dramedy instead, Irrational Man involves the arrival on campus of Abe Lucas (Joaquin Phoenix), a professor that "should put some Viagra into the Philosophy department." Gravitating toward Abe-in-a-funk are science colleague Rita (Parker Posey), locked into a loveless marriage, and especially Jill (Emma Stone), a bright student smitten by the older man's contradictions. When Abe finds the meaningful act he's been searching for, Irrational Man reveals its kinship to Match Point and Crimes and Misdemeanors, swerving into its final act with Hitchcockian aplomb. The Ramsey Lewis Trio's classic "In-Crowd" provides the music motif and Daris Khondji's widescreen lensing the eloquent visuals for an American Master very much at the top of his game on the eve of his 80th birthday.
