Manhattan The town never looked more beautiful, thanks to Gordon Willis stunningly atmospheric wide-screen black-and-white cinematography, than in Woody Allens 1979 valentine to his hometown. The romantic comedy revolves around a twice-divorced comedy writer named Isaac Davis (Allen) who is dating a 17-year-old high school girl ( Mariel Hemingway), only to end up falling in with the mistress (Keaton) of his best friend. Meryl Streep plays his lesbian ex-wife. The opening montage of Manhattan set to Gershwins Rhapsody in Blue is so amazing itll give you goose bumps.
