September (1987)

Director: Woody Allen. Cast: Mia Farrow, Elaine Stritch, Denholm Elliott, Dianne Wiest, Sam Waterston, Jack Warden. 82 min. Rated PG. Drama.

Slight deviation from Allen's usual elements: Working like a play over a 24-hour period in a Vermont summer house, couples locked in from the storm bring up old repressed emotions, and soon you lose track who used to be in love with whom and who (regrettably) ended up with whom. Lots of closeups, lots of two-shots, lots of heartbreaks ... lots of tears. Nice to see Allen's dark emotional side every once in a while. One of those movies that'll remind the viewer of something in the past, making them ask themselves: "What if ..."
