Written by Woody Allen
Directed by Woody Allen
Starring Scarlet Johansson, Hugh Jackman, & Woody Allen
Scoop is an amazing movie! Woody Allen is one of the best filmmakers of all time he really delivers in this film. Scoop is about a student with aspirations to be a journalist gets an anonymous tip from beyond the grave to investigate into the life of a rich man in regards to a string of murders. Scarlet Johanson goes undercover to get close to this mysterious man, Hugh Jackman.
Hugh Jackman and Scarlet Johansson both are fabulously unlikely pair with lots of comedic chemistry. Johansson is an incredible good ditsy silly character and she delivers woody Allen’s lines with vigor.
The film craft is simple and true to a Woody Allen’s style of storytelling. The camera plays a small role in the telling of the story and lets the characters on screen really shine as they do their best to sweep the audience off their feet. I will admit I was swept by this film.
Top 5. I recommend this film. Very enjoyable.
