Jacob Latimore, Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett star in director Kasi Lemmons' seasonal drama.
Following Manhattan and Annie Hall, and before his break-up with Mia Farrow and the demise of his financiers Orion, Allen made several remarkable (though little-seen) films of which this is arguably the finest. Rowlands, writing a book in a rented apartment next door to a psychiatrist, overhears Farrow ruminating on her miserable life, and gets drawn into her world, prompting a radical reassessment of her own relationships.
Superbly written and directed by a film-maker at the peak of his creative power, and with a sublime performance by Rowlands to match, this film has not a joke in sight.
