Woody Allen back in spotlight, promoting new filmThroughout his long career, Woody Allen has been fascinated by magic, a theme he's explored frequently onscreen: playing a magician in "Scoop," sending Owen Wilson on time travel in "Midnight in Paris," or pulling Jeff Daniels out of a movie screen in "The Purple Rose of Cairo". And though one might think, with the wave of terrible publicity he went through earlier this year, that a bit of magician-like escape into a bygone era or a movie screen is just what he might prefer, Allen is doing anything but disappear. He's not only making movies on the same famously ambitious, one-per-year schedule he's adhered to for almost half a century. The question does remain whether Allen's personal issues might affect the public reception of his new film, which stars Colin Firth as a cynical stage magician and Emma Stone as the young spiritualist whose magical powers he seeks to debunk.In any case, Allen himself says he long ago stopped trying to figure out how his movies will be received.That would include Firth and Stone, both working with Allen for the first time.Stone is only 25 – less than half Firth's age – but still has a connection to Allen's films.
