Fi­nally, a Woody Allen film that ev­ery­one can en­joy. Jonathan Rhys Mey­ers ( left) plays Chris Wil­ton, an ex- pro­fes­sional ten­nis player who takes a job as a ten­nis coach at an ex­clu­sive club. His first pupil is Tom ( Matthew Goode), who be­friends Chris, and he is paired off with Tom’s sis­ter Chloe ( Emily Mor­timer) while lust­ing af­ter Tom’s girl­friend, ac­tress Nola ( Scar­lett Jo­hans­son). From this set- up a thriller un­folds, with the con­se­quences of an af­fair build­ing to an in­trigu­ing cli­max in which no- one is left un­touched. The twists that un­fold val­i­dates the time Allen takes to build the at­mos­phere of gen­teel men­ace.
