Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Comedy

Summary: A writer travels to France for inspiration and loses himself in the whimsy of Paris. As he struggles to write his book, he runs into people from the past. They try to help him to complete his book and to find himself.
My Opinion: Midnight in Paris is one of my favorite movies. I love the fact that fiction runs into reality. One minute you're in current-day Paris. The next, you're transported to the past where you meet all the people you wished you could have met. I also love the themes of inspiration and following your dreams. Although no one thought the main character could or would ever finish writing a book, he did. He found his own voice in beautiful Paris. Overall, the hopeful nature and whimsy of this movie make it one of my favorite movies and one of the only movies I look back at for inspiration.
