Match Point
After a history of failure in professional tennis, Chris (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers "Vanity Fair") gets a job as tennis instructor at an English country club. There he meets Tom (Matthew Goode "Chasing Liberty"), a playboy who introduces him to his wealthy family, including his father (Brian Cox "Troy), and his sister Chloe (Emily Mortimer "Dear Frankie"). Chris soon begins to enoy the high life and starts courting Chloe, even marrying her, but not before spotting Tom’s new fiancée, an American actress named Nola (Scarlett Johansson "Lost in Translation"). They begin a rapturous affair and Chris soon finds himself on a dangerous journey that might threaten his perfect, respectable life.

This is one of Woody Allen's few films set outside of New York City, and the change in scenery seems to have really reawakened his creative juices. Taking us into gorgeously photographed London apartments and country homes in the rolling British countryside, he creates a world of wealth and privilege that may soon come to a disastrous conclusion. Thematically, this film has a lot in common with his 1989 dramatic “Crimes and Misdemeanors,” but it's even better. This captivating story of class distinctions that evolves into a chilling psychological thriller is one of the best and most enjoyable films of the year.
