AKFilmFan's rating of the film Magic in the Moonlight

Continuing the hit-or-miss streak that started w/ Midnight In Paris, Allen's return to his favorite time period is a flawed film that gets away with a lot. This is due to the charm of Firth & Stone, who may not have fiery chemistry but give wonderful performances. It may explore the balance between love, lies, faith, & doubt too lightly but the witty humor helps smooth over any flaws. It left with a smile on my face.
