Narrative
DC Premiere


OPENING NIGHT SPONSORED BY THE JACOB & CHARLOTTE LEHRMAN FOUNDATION

Idealistic pharmacist Alice is completely and utterly obsessed with Woody Allen. She’s constantly quoting lines from his films, engaging him in imaginary conversations, and even prescribing her customers his classic works to help alleviate their ailments. Alice’s increasingly concerned Jewish parents hope to cure her fixation by setting her up with a handsome French gentleman (Patrick Bruel), but he quickly realizes that he’s no match for the man of her dreams. A romantic romp through the city of lights, the glorious luxury of cinematic nostalgia, with a special cameo by the original Alvy Singer.

Preceded by Woody Before Allen.
