The 30's. Emmet Ray is a young jazz guitarist, almost as good as Django Reinhard. Self-centered, vain, alcoholic and kleptomaniac, he has also strange hobbies like shooting rats or watching passing trains. A mute young laundress falls in love with him and follows him in Hollywood when he's asked to appear in a movie. Later, Emmet will leave Hattie and marry Blanche - Uma Thurman - a rich heiress who is soon cheating on him.
Great performance of Sean Penn. For Allen aficionados.
