The critical consensus

Woody Allen's latest awkward romance is visually stunning, but narratively underdeveloped.

***(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 30/08/2016

Notable for a superb Kristen Stewart performance, this entertaining lament to old Hollywood and lost love sits between major and minor Woody.

***(*)(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 30/08/2016

The veteran director delivers more cinematic comfort food for grown-ups, helped by classy turns from Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart.

Bittersweet period Woody. Fine.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies

n essence Café Society is very hit and miss with moments that delight and performances that strike all the right notes alongside a laboured, over-busy plot and elements that never quite gel.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 02/09/2016

Jesse Eisenberg is suitably jittery as the director’s alter ego, but it’s Kristen Stewart’s naturalism that carries the movie.
