Get ready for a wildly diverse, star-studded trilogy about life in the big city. NEW YORK STORIES features the creative collaboration of three of America's most popular directors, Martin Scorsese (Hugo), Francis Coppola (The Godfather) and Woody Allen (Midnight In Paris).
LIFE LESSONS - Nick Nolte stars in this passionate tale of a world-famous painter torn between his obsession for his art and his infatuation with his sultry but unresponsive assistant (Rosanna Arquette). Directed by Martin Scorsese.
LIFE WITHOUT ZOE - Talia Shire and Giancarlo Giannini star in this whimsical fantasy as the childlike parents of Zoe, a very grown-up 12-year-old girl who brings charm and magic to life in New York. Directed by Francis Coppola.
OEDIPUS WRECKS - Woody Allen directs and stars in this hilarious comedy as a neurotic lawyer who cannot escape the one woman who looms largest in his life - his mother (Mae Questal)! Mia Farrow and Julie Kavner star as the "other women" who further complicate his situation.

For me, the highlight was the third story written by, directed by, and starring Woody Allen. It is the ode to the Jewish mother and it is hilarious as much as it is heartwarming. The stereotypes are enlarged to mamouth proportions (literally, at times). There were so many scenes that had me laughing out loud but, for me, the best was the one where the people in the traffic jam all get out the pictures of their children. The beauty of this segment was that it was told in just the right amount of time. It would have been overdone as a full-length movie or even as an 80 minute movie. The format enabled three talented directors to tell a short story on film and the economy of time allowed for a better overall product.
