Thurs 12/22: Café Society (Amazon)
Members of the streaming service have already benefited greatly from content partnership with prolific filmmaker Woody Allen. But no doubt access to Allen’s newest works free of charge is the best perk. Café Society is one of Allen’s most charming recent works, without the morbid ending of Irrational Man, and will make an entirely feasible full-family watch. Jesse Eisenberg competently channels the director’s dialogue, and Kristen Stewart is perfectly enchanting as the object of his affection. The movie is completed with strong supporting characters from veterans Steve Carrell, Corey Stoll, and Parker Posey.
