Midnight in Paris
I really enjoyed the latest Woody Allen film because: it's set in Paris (the cinematography is gorgeous), the main protagonist experiences going back in time (I spent ages after seeing the film thinking about what I'd like to go back and experience. I would like to go to the Live Aid Concert in 1985 and see Elvis in Vegas in the 1970's and THAT is just for starters!) and it's a romantic comedy with a central message that nostalgic romanticism for the past is a wasted effort, nothing but an excuse to give up on the present and the future (I get this but would still would like to travel back in time). If you could time travel what would you like to experience?
