Reminiscent of Woody Allen's best intertwined tales of fraught romance and challenging moral questions. Carell is excellent and the period grandeur is captivating.

However, Jesse Eisenberg remains steadfast in his refusal to let any unaffected word pass his lips. At times the affectation is more forgivable since he's doing a strained impersonation of Woody (as countless Woody surrogates have before him); at times it's even more awkward, since it's interspersed with Woody as narrator.
