The film tells the story of Chris Wilton, and Irish born tennis player who realizes there's only so far his game will take him, so he takes a job as a tennis pro hoping to make a connection with London's upper class. His charm and ability ensure this will happen. He meets a client Tom Hewett, the son of a powerful business leader. Wilton marries Tom's sister, endears himself to his in-laws, and has a passionate affair with Nola, Tom's fiancé then later ex-girlfriend. Much of the film focuses on the ways in which Wilton goes to great lengths to cover up his affair.
The actors fit their roles well. Chris Wilton is played masterfully by Irish born Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Rhys Meyers has the look of someone who would fit into British upper class circles, and he comes across less as an imposter and more as a climber. Rhys Meyers, who is familiar to many who saw the film BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, again an Irish lad trying to make it in England, albeit in very different circles, demonstrates he's a believable and versatile actor. Scarlet Johansson plays the American actress Nola, likewise gives a phenomenal performance. The Hewett Family: Brian Cox as father Alec, Penelope Wilton as mother Eleanor, Mathew Goode as Tom and Emily Mortimer as Chris' wife Chloe seem like British aristocrats, oblivious to all that is happening round them, yet believable too.Read more ›
This is just a small portion of the plot for the new film "Match Point". I remember clearly the first time I saw the trailer and the reaction when it was revealed as a Woody Allen film. There were a couple of audible "whoa"s in the audience. Everything in the trailer was different from anything we had ever seen in an Allen film before; hints of a torrid love affair, the predominantly British cast and setting, the dramatic overtones with little evidence of comedy, hints at possible violence. In short, it surprised everyone. It surprised me.Read more ›

It would take Woody Allen to come up with this plot. I was disappointed by several aspects of the movie, most particularly the plot. Read morePublished 19 days ago by shadetree351
A pound of Dreiser, an ounce of Dostoyevsky, a pinch of Stendal perhaps, and a wee bit of Flaubert/Balzac. Mix it all up and rewarm. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ghost(Ghost(M))
Ok, first BIG Jonathan fan so a film with no crown (ok something without a crown since the Tudors was a TV series). Plus I wanted to see what Woody Allen had cooked up for me. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Ally Cat

|Don't expect a "fully loaded" re-release of this DVD...||
All of the Woody Allen DVDs are barebones, as he doesn't like special features. I highly doubt that this film will recieve an SE, seeing as how none of his films have recieved the SE treatment.
