A society playboy with a taste for the lowlife is set up for exploitation by an unscrupulous undercover cop and his shadowy political masters. From IMDB




“Raymond De Felitta’s nifty sleeper of a film is the rare 50s period piece that gets it right, from the little red-shaded lamps on the cramped table of El Casbah to the slithery come-hither sexual signals of a more repressed era.”

“Every single performance works. A wonderful piece of filmmaking and wonderful writing as well.”

Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel, At The Movies (click to watch full review)


“Café Society oozes style with as much conviction as an L.A Confidential or a Mulholland Falls. The acting is top-notch and features career-best performances from both Frank Whaley and Lara Flynn Boyle.

James Bernadelli, ReelViews (Click to read full review)



“So noir, yet so far.”

Jami Bernard, New York Post
