Mini Review - Magic In The Moonlight

Magic In The Moonlight (out Aug 28) is the latest from Woody Allen - a 1920s tale set in Europe about a talented illusionist (Colin Firth) trying to expose a young spiritualist (Emma Stone) who believes she can communicate with the dead. The film is one-third comedy (which works), one-third mystery (which kind of works), and one-third romance (which doesn’t work). Grade: B.
