Diane Keaton and Woody Allen in “Annie Hall” (United Artists, 1977)

“Annie Hall” (United Artists, 1977). “A nervous romance” (or, perhaps as it should be called, “a neurotic romance”). Woody Allen plays Alvy Singer, an obsessive New York comic who meets and falls in love with Annie Hall, played by Diane Keaton, a charming and insecure nightclub singer. One of Woody Allen’s best films, this semi-autobiographical analysis of an ended love affair is both very sad and very funny. Definitely made for grown-ups and definitely worth watching. Written by Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman. Directed by Woody Allen. “Everything our parents said was good is bad. Sun, milk, red meat, college.”
