Magic in the Moonlight

As if proving that old age is a kind of second childhood, Woody Allen has been on a magic-themed run of late. In MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT Colin Firth plays a celebrated stage magician in the 20’s asked to debunk an American clairvoyant named Sophie Baker who appears to have hoodwinked a rich American family in their home on the riviera. Charming without being laugh-out-loud funny, the film seems more intent on casting its own spell than going for the jugular. Shot on 35mm by Darius Khnondji, who seems to catch every dust mote in the diffuse lemony light, MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT is Allen’s most exquisitelooking movie in quite a while, conjuring a Wodehousian eden of lawns and tennis courts, with Stone’s pale-limbed Sophie set like a gem in centre- frame.
