Set in the 1920s, Magic in the Moonlight brings the story of the battle between fantasy and reality. The famed illusionist, Wei Ling Soo travels around the world with his act, but he is a British man called, Stanley (Colin Firth).
He does not believe in spirits or in anything related with the afterlife (including fortune tellers). Until he meets Sophie (Emma Stone). The twenty year-old charms her way into Stanley’s heart with her innocence and her ability to speak with ghosts. At first, like most cliché romantic comedies, the protagonists hates each other. Yet, there is a hidden plot which unravels towards the end of the film. In addition, while Stanley is falling for the ginger clairvoyant and possibly loosing Sophie forever if she marries her millionaire fiancée, Brice (Hamish Linklater).
Not because is a Woody Allen film, I had high expectations. Indeed the director and writer has a long list of successful films – certainly Magic in the Moonlight lacks charm, enthusiasm and it has an exhausting predictable plot. I adored the idea of a clairvoyant protagonist with the skeptical magician; however, the screenplay is dull and not magical.
