  • Hannah and Her Sisters

    1986. USA. Written and directed by Woody Allen. With Allen, Michael Caine, Mia Farrow, Carrie Fisher. “Released in a year of filming dangerously (Blue Velvet, River’s Edge), Allen’s career-high romantic roundelay achieves the bold by, paradoxically, hewing within the boundaries. The setup is Chekhovian, even conventional: A trio of urbanite sisters is psychologically transformed by middle age, marriage, and personal need. And still, the drama that Allen mines, from his strongest ensemble cast to date and a vivid New York City, yields a grace that’s close to mysterious” (Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York). NYFCC Best Picture, 1986. 106 min.
