When failed journalist Lee Simon (Kenneth Branagh) divorces his wife, he tries to boost his career by forcing his way into the social circles of celebrities. However much he tries to achieve fame though, it keeps slipping through his grasp, while his ex-wife Robin (Judy Davis) is catapulted to glory through sheer luck. Directed by comedic and dramatic master Woody Allen, Celebrity also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Melanie Griffith, Wynona Ryder and Bebe Neuwirth (Lilith from Cheers!).

Synopsis

Lee Simon is a journalist roaming from one celebrity encounter to the next, all the while trying to pitch his screenplay and come to terms with his recent divorce from his wife, Robin. Director Woody Allen's dissection of modern celebrity culture features supporting parts by stars Charlize Theron, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Melanie Griffith, as well as cameos by Donald Trump and Isaac Mizrahi.

Description

Allen takes a cynical, biting look at what it means to be a celebrity. With a revolving cast of characters, he covers much ground and presents the whole "star" concept as the vile, pathetic entity that it is. Nykvist's stunning black-and-white cinematography manages to elevate what could have otherwise been just another juvenile critique of a world that we already know is troubled and dysfunctional.
