We gave it an A

Woody Allen’s finest movie since Manhattan is a knowing and sexy adultery drama driven by a lust that turns into authentic compulsion. A former tennis pro (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) insinuates himself into a wealthy Brit family but craves his romantic-erotic candy (i.e., Scarlett Johansson as a troubled American bad girl).
