Freida Pinto in the movie by Woody Allen: Josh Brolin becomes moonstruck over Dia (Freida Pinto), a mystery woman who catches his gaze through a window.

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is a British-Spanish-American comedy-drama film written and directed by Woody Allen. The film features Roger Ashton-Griffiths (as Jonathan), Antonio Banderas (as Greg Clemente), Ewen Bremner (as Henry Strangler), Josh Brolin (as Roy), Anthony Hopkins (as Alfie), Gemma Jones (as Helena), Anupam Kher (as Dia's Father), Freida Pinto (as Dia), Lucy Punch (as Charmaine), Naomi Watts (as Sally) and Anna Friel (as Iris). Cinematography is by Vilmos Zsigmond, editing by Alisa Lepselter and distributed by Sony Pictures Classics (US), Warner Bros. Pictures/Pathé (UK).

The film has the story of a pair of married couples, Alfie (Hopkins) and Helena (Jones), and their daughter Sally (Watts) and husband Roy (Brolin). Their passions, desires, ambitions and anxieties lead them into trouble and make them crazy, rather mad characters out of nowhere. After Alfie leaves Helena to pursue his lost youthfulness and a free-spirited call girl named Charmaine (Punch), Helena abandons surrenders her life to the sloppy advice of a charlatan fortune teller, forming a liaison with recent widower, Jonathan (Ashton-Griffiths). As she is not happy with her marriage, Sally has a crush on her handsome art gallery owner boss Greg (Banderas), while Roy, a novelist awaiting the response to his new manuscript, becomes moonstruck over Dia (Freida Pinto), a mystery woman who catches his gaze through a nearby window (see the photo of Pinto above)…

The film has premiered on 15 May 2010 at the Cannes Film Festival in an out of competition slot. It is scheduled for a 23 September 2010 release in USA and it is expected to be released in UK in early 2011.
