Teen Movie Critic
The Purple Rose of Cairo
On the other hand, this movie is ten times more imaginative than the film I reviewed yesterday, Alice. Once again, Allen's heroine Mia Farrow plays a mousy depression-era housewife, who just loves the movies. She is catching the latest film of her screen idol (Jeff Daniels), when suddenly her idol walks off the screen and into her life. Pandemonium quickly ensues.
The wonderful chemistry between Farrow and Daniels, a bittersweet story and a great supporting cast makes this a charming fantasy. The ending might disappoint the people who were rooting for Farrow's character, but other than that, this is one of Allen's most flawless works.
