Synopsis

Woody Allen writes and directs this biographical study of fictional 1930s jazz guitarist and inveterate womaniser Emmet Ray (Sean Penn). Wandering the New Jersey seafront, Emmet meets mute laundress Hattie (Samantha Morton) and the two of them begin an affair. Together they travel to Hollywood and pursue brief screen careers, but Emmet's wandering eye makes the possibility of any lasting relationship unlikely, and before long he meets and falls for bohemian writer Blanche (Uma Thurman).
