Café Society opened the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. Woody Allen became the first and only director to have three opening night films selected for the Cannes Film Festival. The film follows the story of a Bronx native man in the 1930s. He moves to Hollywood and follows in love with a young woman who is seeing a married man.
The soundtrack features a great collection of the music from the 1930s. The music is featured prominently in the movie and has been chosen by Woody Allen himself and features newly recorded jazz standards by Grammy Award winners Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks and classic recordings from Ben Selvin, Benny Goodman, and Count Basie.
Woody Allen says about the soundtrack: ''The soundtrack consists of music from the 1930s since that's when the picture takes place. Most of the material is [Richard] Rodgers and [Lorenz] Hart, who was very dominant in those years and Lorenz Hart has that bittersweet romantic quality that defines the spirit of the movie itself.''
Café Society is available as a limited edition of 1,000 individually numbered copies on clear and white marbled vinyl. The package includes a 4-page booklet with pictures from the film.
