With a rumor going around that claims Match
Point is the glorious return of Woody Allen to the style and approach
that made him great, I must admit that the release of the domestic trailer
for the film was met with a sizeable amount of interest. That, or the internet
community has already caught the buzz that the film is rated 'R' thanks
to acts of sexuality involving Scarlett Johansson.
Match Point Movie Trailer
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
Written and directed by Academy Award winner Woody Allen (Annie Hall,
Hannah and Her Sisters), 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.
The trailer for Match Point helps represent
the tagline 'between love and lust.' We encounter a newly married man willing
to forsake his marriage and the included fortune in order to pursue a relationship
with a blonde hair bombshell played by Johansson. Once things begin to hit
the fan, Johansson's character pulls the big no-no by threatening to call
the man's wife and inform her about the affair.
