Coming soon: Cafe Society, the latest film by Woody Allen, will be available on DVD 10/18/16. Yes, we all know Woody Allen puts out lots of films. But this marks the third film that K-Stew and J-Berg have starred in together. (That’s Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg for the uninitiated. And I just made up J-Berg, but feel free to start using it!) So while you are waiting for this more sophisticated film, check out these other two which might be a little less pretentious.
From 2015: American Ultra: Mike (Eisenberg) shares a small-town life with his girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart). But Mike’s sleepy world goes wild after he discovers that he’s actually a CIA sleeper agent with lethal fighting skills, and the target of government hit men. Mike, the ultimate slacker, transforms into an ultra-attacker as he and Phoebe fight to survive in this exhilarating adventure.
From 2009: Adventureland: James (Eisenberg), an uptight recent college graduate, discovers that he’ll have to get a degrading minimum-wage job at a local amusement park instead of embarking on his dream tour of Europe when his parents. When James strikes up a relationship with captivating co-worker Em (Stewart), suddenly the summer doesn’t seem quite so bad.
