In Woody Allen’s new movie, Café Society, Kristen Stewart plays a girl from Nebraska who tries her luck in 1930’s Hollywood, an era of big stars like Barbara Stanwyck and Joan Crawford. Jesse Eisenberg plays a boychick from New York who tries his luck in L.A. too, working with his uncle Phil, a big time agent played by Steve Carell. Jesse’s Bobby falls for Kristen’s Vonnie at first sight, and why not? Close ups of her--Vittorio Storaro’s wonderful cinematography makes this film special in Woody Allen’s already outstanding oeuvre--show Kristen Stewart’s transcendent appeal, a look that’s old glamor, and new. This movie, one of Allen’s most poignant on the subject of youthful dreams, love, marriage, and missed chances, should establish Stewart as the actress of her generation.
