Movie Summary

Woody Allen
A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy is a 1982 film starring Woody Allen and Mia Farrow and written and directed by Woody Allen. The film follows the events of one fateful weekend retreat to the country in the early 1900s, where three couples and several other colorful characters are thrust into a dramatic and hilarious web of relationships. Woody Allen plays Andrew, an inventor dragged along to a weekend getaway by his wife, Adrian (Mary Steenburgen). Adrian’s cousin, Leopold (José Ferrer) has also come for the weekend with his beautiful, young fiancée Ariel (Mia Farrow). Also in attendance is the lecherous doctor Maxwell (Tony Roberts) and his new girlfriend, Dulcy (Julie Hagerty). As the guests meet, mingle, and sneak off behind their lovers’ backs, the tensions build, and what began as a weekend with several couples turns into a weekend with one hopelessly confused mass of lusty affairs. A Midsummer Night’s Sex comedy is a classic Woody Allen film, and the first film to feature him as part of his ensemble cast.moreless
