Woody Allen?s latest film is the fanciful biography of a legendary jazz guitarist, Emmet Ray (Sean Penn), who clashed with lovers, gangsters, musicians and success itself in the 1930?s Jazz scene, touring extensively both in America and Europe.
A central character in the fictional biography of Emmet Ray is the real-life jazz legend Django Reinhardt (Michael Sprague). Reinhardt has been hailed as the most important jazz guitarist in history, and one of the greatest guitar players who ever lived.
Woody Allen?s tale traverses the nightclubs, back alleys and train yards of the Swing Era jazz scene, yet was entirely filmed within an hour of Manhattan.
