NEW YORK VIEW
Woody Allen’s buzzy Cannes sensation—could this be his return to relevance?—in which a British onetime tennis star climbs the social ladder by getting engaged to one of his students, only to fall for the seductive girlfriend of his future brother-in-law. Brian Cox, Matthew Goode, Scarlett Johansson, Emily Mortimer, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

CINEMASOURCE SYNOPSIS
Chris Wilton, a young tennis instructor, becomes involved with a wealthy family, one member of which he's giving tennis lessons to. This leads to his rise in the world of upper class people and his subsequent romantic involvement with two women. A clandestine affair follows, leading him into an ever deepening quagmire until the only way out for him is to contemplate doing away with one of the women.
