Magic In The Moonlight
Woody Allen returns to theaters with a romantic comedy set in 1920s France that focuses on a skeptical magician who crosses paths with enchanting mystic. Colin Firth and Emma Stone star. Woody Allen directs. Read our review here.

For more romance with an old-school spin, indulge in this selection that boasts a modern fairytale, a cheeky buddy-comedy, and a seminal classic.

Penelope (2006) Christina Ricci stars as a smart and warm heiress who has it all--including a curse that's given her a pig-nose. The curse promises she'll look this way until one of her fellow blood blues loves her, and so begins a romantic adventure that includes a tenacious tabloid reporter, an overprotective mother, a gambler with a heart of gold. James McAvoy, Catherine O'Hara and Peter Dinklage co-star; Mark Palansky directs.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008) This charming rom-com has been criminally under-seen and unsung. Frances McDormand stars as Miss Pettigrew, a woman of principles who can't keep a nannying job despite her best efforts. Broke and desperate, she schemes her way into a posh position as the personal assistant to an American ingénue. Their introduction begins a day that will change both of their lives forever. Amy Adams, Lee Pace, and Ciaran Hinds co-star; Bharat Nalluri directs.

His Girl Friday (1940) Rosalind Russell stars as ace reporter Hildy Johnson, who is on the brink of leaving her professional life behind to marry a sweet but bland businessman. But not if her editor/ex-husband played by Cary Grant has anything to do with it! Howard Hawks directs.
