The last time Woody Allen went a full calendar year without releasing a movie he’d written was 1976, between Love and Death and Annie Hall, when he starred in The Front.

Cate Blanchett plays a snobby New York housewife whose husband Alec Baldwin loses the fortune, forcing her to move in with her sister in San Francisco, where a cup of coffee will only cost you $6.95. Andrew Dice Clay has a bit part – which sounds weird, though I’ve always thought of him as one of the more actorsy of comedians – as does Bobby Cannavalle (Gyp Rosetti from Boardwalk Empire). It must ease Cate Blanchett’s transition that everyone in San Francisco talks like a mechanic from Brooklyn.
