Midnight in Paris is a romantic comedy that follows a family travelling to the city for business. The party includes a young engaged couple that has their lives transformed throughout the journey. The film celebrates a young man's great love for Paris, and simultaneously explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better.
Midnight in Paris is produced by Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Jaume Roures. It is part of a three-picture financing deal between Allen's Gravier Productions and Mediapro, the Spain-based company which also funded Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona and the upcoming You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger to be released domestically by Sony Pictures Classics this fall. Imagina International Sales is handling international sales for Midnight in Paris for most territories.
