Woody Allen has always been interested in man's search for meaning in life – a search he clearly sees as futile.As always, the casting is something any director would kill for.It's summer session at a small college, and Abe Lucas (Phoenix) arrives to teach philosophy.Abe is precisely the sort of disgruntled, unattainable intellectual that young women can't stay away from. That's what happens to Jill (Stone), who's beautiful, brilliant, kind and also an accomplished pianist (that last part may be overkill, but it's certainly not the film's most outlandish plot point).Yes, it's a leap – but Allen's films are famous for such leaps (Time travel, anyone?To sell the film's escalating implausibility, of course, Allen needs strong and appealing performances.Phoenix and Posey are pitch-perfect.
