Woody Allen on ‘Cafe Society’: ‘I Wanted to Write a Novel on Film’


A star-studded crowd gathered at The Paris Theatre in New York City Wednesday night as Amazon and Lionsgate collaborated with The Cinema Society for the U.S. premiere of Woody Allen‘s “Café Society.” The film, which has an ensemble cast including Jesse Eisenberg, Blake Lively, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell, and Corey Stoll, originally bowed at the 69th Cannes Film Festival in May.

According to Allen, the film was marked by the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood and was intentionally scripted to feel like a book. “I wanted to write a novel on film and I wanted it to have a novel structure,” he said.

The story is too old to be commented.
