A wife discovers of her husbands infidelity, while her sisters are having relationship issues of their own.
This is often hailed as one of Woody Allen's better works, though I actually thought this wasn't anything particularly special at all. In fact, it was rather boring.
Littered with pretentious, upper East Side New Yorkers, pseudo-intellectual dialogue and no real point to any of the stories or failing to resolve any of issues of infidelity that it raises, leaving a rather loose moral that "it's okay to fuck your wife's sister (or even your adopted daughter, perhaps)".
Strictly for Allen fans or those who yearn a bohemian lifestyle. I really didn't think this was as good as its reputation suggests.
