Directed by Woody Allen. With Mia Farrow, Dianne Wiest, Michael Caine, Barbara Hershey. Between two Thanksgivings two years apart, Hannah's husband falls in love with her sister Lee, while her hypochondriac ex-husband rekindles his relationship with her sister Holly. Hannah, Holly, and Lee are adult sisters from a show business family, their boozy actress mother who still believes she's an ingénue that can attract any man she wants, despite still being married to the girls' father, Evan. Hannah, on her second marriage to a man named Elliot, a financial advisor, is the success of the family, taking a break from her acting career to raise her children.

Woody Allen returns to modern day NYC for the first time since Manhattan (1979) with this, one of Woody Allen’s most loved films. A sprawling, rambling tale of three sisters who live in New York, and the lives they lead. It is little more than that – but the charm and flair that Allen brings to screen is truly amazing.

Mere Anarchy, Woody Allen’s first collection in over 25 years, features eighteen witty, wild and intelligent comic pieces – eight of which have never been in print before. Three Films of Woody Allen. Hannah and Her Sisters. Four Films of Woody Allen. Surreal, absurd, rich in verbal play, bitingly satirical and just plain daft in the mode we have grown to love from his finest films, this flight-of-fancy collection includes tales of a body double who, mistaken for the film’s star, is kidnapped by outlaws; a pretentious novelist forced to work on the novelisation of a Three Stooges film; a nanny secretly.

Right in the middle of Woody Allen’s most artistically fertile period came Hannah and Her Sisters, and if it didn’t bring the funny floppy hats like Annie Hall, it has since come to represent everything this filmmaker did well. Here was Allen’s Gotham, not romanticized in Manhattan’s chiaroscuro, but stripped down to a natural, multiseasoned beauty.

Thanksgiving with the family is always a time of unrest and uncertainty. And, in this film, it starts slowly, but soon we are engrossed in the entire lives of Hannah and her sisters and their men.

Hannah played by Mia Farrow, is an actress, stay at home mom, married to an accountant played by Michael Caine. They hold the Thanksgiving dinners where everyone meets. Lee, Hannah's sister, played by Barbara Hershey, lives with an eccentric artist. The other sister, Holly, is played by Diane Weist, she is a recovering cocaine addict and always needs money. Elliott, the accountant thinks he is in love with Lee, though he really loves Hannah. He and Lee have an affair that drags on. Holly finally finds her place with script writing. The entire family is upset, and the issue becomes unsettling. Carrie Fisher plays a small part as Holly's partner in a catering service.

What we have is a mess, here, sheriff. Each of the sisters is trying to find her way. Woody Allen plays Hannah's ex husband, a neurotic as always, but he is at his best in this film. As each member of the family tries to find their way, life has more meaning. Secrets are told, and secrets kept, and in the midst, wonderfully revealing stories and solutions are found. This is said to be Woody Allan's best film, and it was a captivating afternoon.

This is one of Woody Allen's more "serious" movies, but he still gets in plenty of laughs. (Crucifix... check. Religious tomes... check. Wonder bread and mayo... check.) Watching this a second time after many years, I was surprised by how many great supporting actors appeared that I didn't remember (Julie Kavner, Sam Waterston, John Turturro, Carrie Fisher, etc.). But the standout performance is by Dianne Wiest, who is terrific; it really makes you wonder why she didn't get bigger parts later. Max von Sydow is also great in a supporting role, as usual. I did have a couple of peeves; for example, we see Hannah as a wife, sister, and daughter, but hardly at all as a mother despite having four kids. But those are mostly quibbles. Despite dealing with some pretty weighty issues (mortality, infidelity, sibling rivalry, etc.), this movie really keeps the viewer engrossed and entertained throughout. I highly recommend it.

Hannah And Her Sisters I'm a big fan of Woody Allen's films and I think this is one of this best..as per his usual style, the film features a fair amount of jazz music, which adds atmosphere...but his photography is spectacular - there is one scene where an architect is showing two women his favorite New York buildings and the photography showcases some gorgeous structures. The plot ties together several relationships that take place between 3 Thanksgivings. All of the characters are engaging. If I had one criticism, it would be the story line about one Woody-Allenesque character's struggle with faith and depression...Mr. Allen does that too often and it feels too much like self-therapy, so it's stopped being interesting to me. (The subject is a recurring theme in his films.) But even that storyline has moments that are worth watching...overall a very entertaining film.

This is Woody Allen's best film in an extraordinarily creative, accomplished career. Its blend of tears and laughter is perfect, with every scene hitting its mark with acuity. The remarkable cast portrays a group of New Yorkers that act like so many of Chekhov's characters (although Manhattan is the farthest thing from Moscow): miserable on the surface, but real swingers underneath. I won't go so far as to say Woody's inspiration was the play "Three Sisters," but I find a deep similarity in there somewhere.

I loved Roger Ebert's insight about the titles that precede certain scenes. He said that the reason Woody used this device was to demonstrate how much we want to organize our lives into neat chapters, but that life always manages to upend all our plans with the unpredictable. Many lives are indeed upended in Woody's brilliant story, and where they will all land is what keeps us engaged and fascinated by what is happening on the screen. This film has my favorite of all of Woody's endings, too.

I went back and forth for years debating whether this film or "Manhattan" was Woody's greatest. Now I'm sure. If you own only one Woody Allen movie, make it this one.

If you like Woody Allen and consider New York City to be the Garden of Eden (it's the Big Apple after all), you will thoroughly enjoy this film.

If you don't like Woody, this film is good enough you may enjoy it anyway for the story and fine acting. Plus all the neurosis you xpect and more.

If you're a millennial wondering who is this Woody guy your mother raves about (Dad not so much unless he's a professor at Columbia), then try this one and 'Manahattan.' Ignore the recent stuff where Woody becomes ridiculously obsessed with and sex, and loses his sparkle.

INDEED! This is one of Woody Allen's best work. Now, you have to be patient; you have to look closely with a critical eye; you have to be open to art in any form or fashion and you have to be willing to accept people on their own merits, levels and preoccupations. Woody Allen is very good at creating that for his audiences and demonstrating that very well. And the characters will seem faulty, not flawless, but then you will soon come to learn or just accept that we are all faulty, not flawless. We could not create "flawless" in our being if we tried (and lived) for a thousand years trying to get there. People are not perfect, not even in a performance. Woody Allen's actors have to do ''fault-full'' characters to get by his director's eye...as if "flawless" was a germ that makes him sick.--MO

I have seen this film a dozen times. It is like a rare treat I dole out to myself from time to time since its release date. I aways enjoy it and yet again catch one more sly reference or joke. Perhaps early (or Late or the whole of) Woody Allen has become irrelevant, as some most likely younger than I am people have said. I don't care. Waycj it again over the last to nights and still loved it....
