Woody Allen’s romantic comedy A RAINY DAY IN NEW YORK tells the story of
college sweethearts, Gatsby (Timothée Chalamet) and Ashleigh (Elle
Fanning), whose plans for a romantic weekend together in New York City are
dashed as quickly as the sunlight turns into showers. When Ashleigh gets an
assignment from the school paper to interview celebrated film director
Roland Pollard (Liev Schreiber) in Manhattan, Gatsby seizes the opportunity
to show Arizona-bred Ashleigh his favorite haunts in his home city.
Gatsby’s well-laid plans are quickly sidetracked when Pollard invites
Ashleigh to watch a work-in-progress screening of his new film. Ashleigh is
soon off on a head-spinning series of encounters that lead her from Pollard
to screenwriter Ted Davidoff (Jude Law) to movie star Francisco Vega (Diego
Luna). Left to his own devices in the city, Gatsby ends up spending the day
with Chan (Selena Gomez), the sharp-witted younger sister of his
ex-girlfriend, attending parties and having his own life-changing
conversations and encounters.
