You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is a 2010 comedy-drama film written and directed by Woody Allen. It features Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto, Naomi Watts, and Christian McKay.

The film follows a pair of married couples, Alfie (Hopkins) and Helena (Jones), and their daughter Sally (Watts) and husband Roy (Brolin), as their passions, ambitions, and anxieties lead them into trouble and out of their minds.

After Alfie leaves Helena to pursue his lost youth and a free-spirited call girl named Charmaine (Punch), Helena abandons rationality and surrenders her life to the loopy advice of a charlatan fortune teller, forming a liaison with recent widower, Jonathan (Ashton-Griffiths).

Unhappy in her marriage, Sally develops a crush on her handsome art gallery owner boss, Greg (Banderas), while Roy, a novelist nervously awaiting the response to his latest manuscript, becomes moonstruck over Dia (Pinto), a mystery woman who catches his gaze through a nearby window. Despite these characters’ attempts to dodge their problems with pipe dreams and impracticable plans, their efforts lead only to heartache, irrationality, and perilous hot water.

"It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."      A narrator uses this Shakespeare quote to open Woody Allen's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger," which is at great pains to make a point about how there is no point to be made. For any film, this would be a spectacularly bad premise. For a Woody Allen film, it's downright fatal. Here we are, being drawn into a story about the complexities of relationships, only to realize …
