Owen Wilson is perfectly cast in this romantic comedy with Rachel McAdams. As soon as I saw Kathy Bates listed on the cast, I knew she would play Gertrude Stein. Adrian Brodie does a hilarious Dali.
The Fitzgeralds, Hemingway, Picasso and Cole Porter can all be found together in a smoky scene or two.
The movie made me want to pull out my copy of the Movable Feast again:
But Paris was a very old city and we were young and nothing was simple there, not even poverty, nor sudden money, nor the moonlight, nor right and wrong nor the breathing of someone who lay beside you in the moonlight. (p. 89)
