From veteran filmmaker Woody Allen comes a change of pace; "Match Point" is a romantic thriller starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Scarlett Johansson, and Emily Mortimer, and if curiosity is already piqued, then you’ll certainly want to check out the theatrical trailer over at the Apple Quicktime site.
"Match Point" is a drama about ambition, the seduction of wealth, love, and sexual passion. Perhaps most importantly, however, the story reveals the huge part luck plays in events, refuting the comforting misconception that more of life is under our control than really is.
Written and directed by Academy Award® winner Woody Allen, "Match Point" represents a departure for the native New Yorker, the majority of whose films lovingly depict New York and—not always so lovingly—New Yorkers. Crossing the Atlantic for the first time in his film career, Allen set "Match Point" in London, where it was also filmed."
