Films for – and about – film buffs almost constitute a genre of its own, and this is one of the sweetest of the lot. Against a Great Depression backdrop we are told a tale of warm nostalgia, naive escapism, various illusions – and some kind of love. Mia Farrow shines, as usual.

Movie magic. In my most charming book of the silver screen.
