During a rainy weekend in the romantic city of New York, Elle Fanning, a young ingenious journalist, and her lover Timothée Chalamet, go astray. Unexpected encounter, unusual chance, funny circumstances... we come back to the retro atmosphere with tender pastel colours that Woody Allen, 83, loves so much. A Rainy Day in New York, a delicate and twirling romantic comedy will be released in French theaters on September 18, and in several European countries throughout Autumn. No US release has yet been announced.
Amazon, original producer of the movie, terminated its contract with Woody Allen due to the revelations of sexual assaults on his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, as a child. The film was unlikely to even see the light of day. Rebecca Hall, Vicky Cristina Barcelona’s hero, announced last year that she no longer wanted to work with the old director, and gave her full salary to the association created in response to the Weinstein case: Time’s Up. The charming Timothée Chalamet and the pop star Selena Gomez followed in her footsteps: they donated their salary to organizations fighting rape and sexual abuse.
