Manhattan Blu Ray

| Blu Ray

Nominated for two Academy Awards and considered one of [Woody] Allen's most enduring accomplishments (Box office) Manhattan is a wry touching and finely rendered portrait of modern relationships set against the backdrop of urban alienation. Sumptuously photographed in black and white (Allen's first film in that format) and accompanied by a magnificent Gershwin score Allen's aesthetic triumph is a prismatic portrait of a time and a place that may be studied decades hence (Time). Forty-two-year-old Manhattan native Isaac Davis (Allen) has a job he hates a seventeen... year- old girlfriend Tracy (Mariel Hemingway) he doesn't love and a lesbian ex-wife Jill (Meryl Streep) who's writing a tell-all book about their marriage... and whom he'd like to strangle. But when he meets his best friend's sexy intellectual mistress Mary (Diane Keaton) Isaac falls head over heels in lust! Leaving Tracy bedding Mary and quitting his job are just the beginnings of Isaac's quest for romance and fulfilment in a city where sex is as intimate as a handshake - and the gateway to true love... is a revolving door.

Woody Allen co-writes, directs and stars in this romantic comedy drama. Isaac Davis (Allen) is a twice-divorced TV comedy writer, frustrated in both career and his love life. An on-off affair with teenage drama student Tracy (Mariel Hemingway) is blighted by his anxiety about their age difference, whilst his attraction to the pretentious Mary (Diane Keaton) is complicated by the fact that she is already having an affair with his married friend Yale (Michael Murphy). Meanwhile, his lesbian ex-wife Jill (Meryl Streep) prepares to dish the dirt about their marriage in a forthcoming book. The film was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Hemingway) and Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen.
