A one-time tennis pro, Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) was used to falling just short in his life. But when he befriends Tom Hewett (Matthew Goode) and marries his sister, Chloe (Emily Mortimer), the doors are opened to the kind of money and success that Chris had once only dreamed of.
Chris should have settled for happiness, but he is torn by his attraction to Tom’s impossibly beautiful and sensual fiancée, Nola (Scarlett Johansson). The attraction turns to an obsession that forces Chris to make a critical choice. Now everything in his life hinges on if Chris falls short again…and whether or not his luck runs out.
Woody Allen came to London in the summer of 2004 to film Match Point, his first production to be made entirely outside of his native New York. He not only had the advantage of the famous British weather, but also access to a wide range of wonderful locations, such as:
- Royal Opera House
- Queen’s Tennis Club
- Tate Modern
- Ealing Studios
- Palace Theatre
- Covent Garden Hotel
Woody Allen also filmed extensively on the streets of London. Filming took place for seven weeks in and around the capital and locations included some of the city’s most famous landmarks as well as lesser-known sites in Belgravia, Marylebone, Notting Hill, Chelsea and Covent Garden.
