‘Cassandra’s Dream‘ is the 37th film written and directed by Woody Allen.
It marks Woody Allen’s third film in a row in London. It’s another serious morality tale – with not a hint of Allen’s wit on show. Featuring original score, it iss an intense and bizarre film – that ultimately doesn’t work.
Colin Farrell and Ewan McGregor star as Terry and Ian, two brothers with big dreams. Terry is a gambler who is heading for inevitable trouble while Ian is an ambitious social climber. When they both find themselves in desperate need to money, they ask their rich Uncle Howard (Tom Wilkinson) for a favour. But Howard has a favour to ask himself.
