While it doesn't rank among Woody Allen's truly lesser late-period efforts, Rifkin's Festival finds the filmmaker content to revisit well-worn territory. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Mort Rifkin (Wallace Shawn - Manhattan, My Dinner with Andre), a retired film studies professor, accompanies his publicist wife Sue (Gina Gershon New Amsterdam, Killer Joe) to the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain. He goes not for the films, but because he's worried that Sue's fascination with her young buzzed-about film director client, Philippe (Louis Garrel - Little Women, An Officer and a Spy), might be more than professional. In addition, Mort hopes the change of scenery will provide a respite from his struggle to write a first novel that lives up to his impossibly exacting standards. With Mort's relentlessly dismissive opinions of Philippe, and Sue's sharp focus on her career as well as Philippe, their already frayed relationship becomes more strained. Mort's mood lightens when he meets Jo Rojas (Elena Anaya - The Skin I Live In), a kindred spirit whose marriage to tempestuous painter Paco (Sergi López - Pan's Labyrinth) is causing her pain as well. While Mort's personal tastes have sometimes pushed people away, Jo's intellect and shared sensibility draw them together. While Sue spends her days with Philippe, Mort's relationship with Jo deepens.
