Plot Sypnosis:

“One of the best movies about movies ever made” (Time Magazine), Woody Allen’s The Purple Rose of Cairo slips through the looking glass of cinematic convention to create a magical, “intoxicating” (Cosmopolitan) comic fable about life, love, illusion and hope. Starring Mia Farrow, Jeff Daniels, Danny Aiello and Dianne Wiest, this Academy Award-nominated* film showcases Allen “at his most imaginative and compassionate, capturing the magic of the cinema” (Screen International) in all of its bittersweet glory!

Lonely Depression-era waitress Cecilia (Farrow) is hopelessly addicted to Hollywood movies. Spellbound by her new favorite,
The Purple Rose of Cairo, Cecilia is astonished when the leading man (Daniels) suddenly walks off the screen to meet her. Wooed by his charm, Cecilia finds herself falling for him - until she meets the real actor who plays him. Romanced by both a fictional character and a famous star, Cecilia struggles to locate the shifting line between fantasy and reality, only to discover that sometimes it’s just a heartbeat away.
