‘Hollywood Ending‘ is the 32nd film written and directed by Woody Allen.
Another light comedy, Allen returns to Hollywood’s abuse of art as a victim of his barbed wit.
Woody Allen stars as Val Waxman, a director past his prime who is given a second chance by his studio executive ex-wife Ellie (Téa Leoni) to make a new film. Unfortunately he is struck by blindness – but it might not be the problem that ends his career.
