Hannah And Her Sisters
USA 1986
Directed by Woody Allen
Running time 106 minutes

4.5 stars


Allen's most commercially successful film marks a watershed in his career and established the house style to be seen many times subsequently, with a large ensemble cast of well-known actors playing out a Manhattan chamber piece. Michael Caine and Dianne Weist, who both won Best Supporting Actor Oscars (as did Allen's screenplay), are excellent.  Woody is himself, as usual. The fiflm has an unusually upbeat ending, which may be due to the benign influence of Woody's partner at the time, Mia Farrow, a condition that we now know was not to last.. BH
