Collection of seven classic Woody Allen films. In 'Hannah and Her
Sisters' (1986), Hannah (Mia Farrow), a wife, mother, successful
actress and linchpin to her family, is married to Elliot (Michael
Caine), but Elliot is in love with Lee (Barbara Hershey), Hannah's
sister. Holly (Dianne Wiest), Hannah's other sister, is jealous of
Hannah, whilst Mickey (Allen), Hannah's first husband, is convinced
he is dying of a brain tumour. When Hannah's world is turned upside
down by all her relatives' behaviour, she finds she has to choose
between her family and her independence. 'Radio Days' (1986)
consists of a series of vignettes depicting life in 1940s New York,
a time of recession in which the radio played an important role in
people's lives. Focusing on one chaotic working class family in
Queens, the film contrasts their struggles with the lives of the
radio stars who live and work in the glitz and glamour of
Manhattan. In 'September' (1987), Lane (Farrow) is staying at her
childhood home in Vermont as she recovers from a nervous breakdown.
She has been having an affair with Peter (Sam Waterston), a writer
who lives nearby, but now relations between them seem to have
inexplicably cooled. When Lane's mother Diane (Elaine Stritch)
arrives with unexpected news, and the fate of her relationship with
Peter becomes clear, Lane's emotional world is thrown into turmoil
once again. 'Another Woman' (1988) follows Marion (Gena Rowlands),
an academic who rents a flat in which to write a book on
philosophy, as she becomes intrigued by conversations she overhears
from a psychologist's office next door. One patient, Hope (Farrow),
has a particular effect on Marion, forcing her to rethink many of
her assumptions about her own life. In 'Crimes and Misdemeanours'
(1989), when Judah (Martin Landau)'s mistress Dolores (Anjelica
Huston) threatens to tell his wife Miriam (Claire Bloom) about
their affair, he contacts his gangster brother and arranges to have
her killed. Meanwhile Cliff (Allen), a documentary film-maker, is
falling in love with his producer Halley (Farrow) while making a
film tribute to the brother-in-law he hates. Moral dilemmas abound
as the two stories interweave, leaving Judah and Cliff both needing
to make a decision that could change their lives forever. In
'Alice' (1990), troubled New York housewife Alice (Farrow), visits
a Chinese acupuncturist in search of relief from back pain and is
prescribed a variety of herbs. Some embolden her, one makes her
invisible and others allow her to revisit her past. Most
importantly however, they allow her to re-evaluate her future.
Finally, 'Shadows and Fog' (1991) charts the events of a single
night in a small European town during the 1920s. Kleinman (Allen),
a fearful bookkeeper, is woken up by his neighbours who want him to
participate in a mob search for a killer. Meanwhile, a performer
who has run away from the circus stumbles across Kleinman as the
two wander aimlessly through the night.
