Original screenplay: Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Woody Allen

A character study of two privileged young women at a pivotal moment in their lives, wavering between lives of unconventional joy or soulless materialism, this script finds Allen remaining in strong form as he continues to work in Europe. His characters don’t seem burdened by any political, social or economic issues, and his young people never seem touched by pop culture, but Allen’s concerns are more timeless than that, anyway. He’s taking the long view.

WHY IT’LL WIN: Offers a smart, funny story with deep emotion underneath.

MAYBE NOT: Naval-gazing by priviliged characters can feel irrelevant in these hard times.
