Now Schneider is giving Bobby some advise.

Anna Camp.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 7.19.15 PM

She’s talking to Bobby. This scene was recently shown at CinemaCon, to theatre chain owners.

And we’re watching jazz. This is likely Ben’s nightclub, after Bobby returns to New York, a success. With him, we see her back, is Blake Lively.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 7.49.12 PM

Here’s Lively in a much better shot, wearing that amazing silver dress we saw in production photos. Bobby asks her to watch some jazz.

More of that café society. The extras look amazing.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.16.51 PM

More dancing. Café society sure looks fun.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.17.54 PM

Our cast.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.18.35 PM

Love isn’t rational, our voiceover says.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.19.43 PM

Vonnie, looking beautiful.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.20.01 PM

Bobby. Looking very suave.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.24.06 PM

Blake Lively, also looking gorgeous, twirling in a new dress.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.24.20 PM

Bobby again. It’s pretty clear it’s his story.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.24.31 PM

Rose again.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.24.50 PM

Her husband, and Bobby’s dad.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.25.50 PM

Another glamorous set. What a great pool.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.26.40 PM

It’s a Hollywood party! With Bobby and Phil. It could be Posey behind Bobby.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.26.57 PM

And they watched a film, projected in a friggin amazing looking library room. All these extraordinary houses were found in Los Angeles.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.29.48 PM

And then, this very uncharacteristically violent shot. With the quick camera move and the punches landing, this actually might be the most violent scene ever in one of Allen’s films. It’s not all good times and parties. Is that Bobby being beaten up?

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.30.52 PM

“…the examined one is no bargain.” Lively on the right.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.33.57 PM

Vonnie, looking cute.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.36.02 PM

Bobby, looking very successful, far from that Brooklyn kid.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.39.56 PM

Big smile from Blake Lively. Probably why she’s a film star.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.41.18 PM

The beach. We saw lots of photos from this day when they filmed it.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.42.15 PM

Bobby looks at the men whose life he might have.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.43.48 PM

We see Phil again.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.47.15 PM

There was a New Year’s Eve party scene shot. This is probably it.

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.47.31 PM

Here’s our title.
Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.49.06 PM

“Life is a comedy…

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.57.05 PM

…written by a sadistic comedy writer.”

Screen Shot 2016-04-22 at 8.50.28 PM

And it’s out in just under three weeks!

Again, part 1 is here.

That’s it! We think it looks wonderful. As a period piece, the sets, the costumes, and the filmmaking looks like it will be something special. It also seems to be an epic story, spanning years, two coasts, Hollywood, Nightclubs, Film Stars and Mobsters. What’s not to like?

Café Society premieres in France on 11th May.
