A Rainy Day In New York is Allen’s 2018 romantic comedy that was put on hold after controversy between Allen and the #MeToo movement. The film focuses on Gatsby Welles (Timothée Chalamet), the son of wealthy New York socialites as he returns for a weekend to show his girlfriend Ashleigh (Elle Fanning) his Manhattan neighbourhood. Ashleigh is travelling to New York to interview Pollard for her university newspaper and quickly becomes entangled in the New York film scene.
Beyond the leads, there’s a stellar cast, including Selena Gomez, Jude Law, Diego Luna and Cherry Jones, to name a few. Yet, not even a Chalamet-led cast.
