Hypnotic London-based morality tale of lower-class tennis instructor (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) who marries a young woman (Emily Mortimer) from an affluent family and commences an affair with his brother-in-law's ex-fiancee (Scarlett Johansson). Writer-director Woody Allen is at the top of his serious, as opposed to humorous, form in a superbly acted psychological drama that makes its cautionary point even though, like its protagonist, the film delineates a universe governed not by God, but by pure luck. Several discreetly filmed sexual encounters but no overt nudity, some innuendo, adultery theme, scattered profanity and crass words, a couple of violent episodes discreetly filmed, abortion discussion and nihilistic worldview. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
