The film definitely has much of Allen's signature style: quirky humor, a vibrant color scheme, a timed feel to it, and a gleefully over-the-top romance. I thought that it definitely delivered on my expectations for it. Allen essentially tells the same storyline over and over again (that of the star-crossed lovers), but changes the subplots to make it more original. The characters in the film are as well-written as usual for Allen, and that ultimately makes the story interesting. There were also quite a few laughs to be found in the film, making for an enjoyable experience.
The cinematography of the film was great, as was the score. Both worked to establish the period and style of the film, and did so very well. The acting of the film was also great from the ensemble, with Eisenberg, Carrell, Stoll, and Stewart giving exceptionally notable performances.
So overall, I enjoyed "Café Society" a lot, and I thought that it was very well-made. While I loved it, it very much had the feel of other Woody Allen films, so people who dislike his style likely won't care for this film either.
