Celebrity: Critical Response
“Nice to know he’s there. Woody Allan does it again. It’s funny. It’s great. It’s real. Actors act. Kenneth Branagh does a great Woody Allan. It’s a love story with a twist. Big issues rounded up in the circle of celebrity. How do we choose our idols? Why do we worship them? And how can we become celebrity?”
