Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parents' business trip. Gil is a successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight and discovers what could be the ultimate source of inspiration for writing. Gil's daily walks at midnight in Paris could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he's about to marry. Written by

Did You Know?
For Gil's difficult and demanding fiancée, Inez, Woody Allen
says he had Rachel McAdams
in mind as he was writing. And when he pitched her the part, he told her, "It would be much more interesting for you to play this kind of character. You don't want to go your whole life playing these beautiful girls. You want to play some bitchy parts. It's much more interesting for you." Despite this, McAdams had already had her share of playing "bitchy parts" prior to playing Inez, such as her roles in The Hot Chick
(2002) as Jessica Spencer, Mean Girls
(2004) as Regina George and The Family Stone
(2005) as Amy Stone. See more
In a scene set in the 1920s, the small bollards lining the kerbs to prevent cars from parking with two wheels on the pavement can be seen - they were installed in the 1990s. See more
This is unbelievable! Look at this! There's no city like this in the world. There never was.
You act like you've never been here before.
I don't get here often enough, that's the problem. Can you picture how drop dead gorgeous this city is in the rain? Imagine this town in the '20s. Paris in the '20s, in the rain. The artists and writers!
Why does every city have to be in the rain? What's wonderful about getting wet?
