Arguably Woody Allen’s masterpiece and one of the best films of the 1970s overall, Annie Hall gets a 35mm screening tonight at the Brattle Theatre. The comedic, psychoanalytical wunderkind plays Alvy Singer, a self loathing comic with a serious dose of existentialism. Singer continually breaks the fourth wall and asks the audience as well as himself why his relationship ended with longtime girlfriend Annie Hall (Diane Keaton). Their past is retold, with the many ups and downs and various in-betweens endlessly reflected upon by Alvy to no definitive conclusion. Is sincere love an impossibility? It sure seems that way throughout the story, but so is a stronger sense that the human condition is certainly capable of it.

330pm, 730pm // Brattle Theatre // $10 General Admission, $8 Matinee/Student, $7 Senior
