Café Society


1h 36m 2016

Brief Synopsis

Bobby's family features relentlessly bickering parents Rose and Marty, casually amoral gangster brother Ben, good-hearted sister Evelyn and her egghead husband Leonard. Seeking more out of life, Bobby flees his father's jewelry store for Hollywood, where he works for Uncle Phil, a high-powered agent. Phil's charming assistant Vonnie steals Bobby's heart, and eventually breaks it. Bobby returns to New York, where he begins working for Ben, who has muscled his way into owning a nightclub. Bobby displays natural talents as an impresario and swiftly promotes the club into the hottest one in town, renaming it "Les Tropiques." When Bobby meets beautiful socialite Veronica, he courts her assiduously. Although he is still carrying a torch for Vonnie, when Veronica reveals she's pregnant, they marry and begin a genuinely happy life together. Everything seems to have fallen into place for Bobby until the night Vonnie walks into "Les Tropiques."
