The irony of 'Midnight In Paris' for me was that it showed me that the Paris I thought I had found was simply the Paris most non-Parisians go searching for. Having dined at most of the restaurants in the film - from Polidor, Le Grand Vefour, The Meurice, Braserrie Lipp (I took OW there for the first time) - it really was a trip down memory lane but it made me feel like a huge walking cliche. Something funny to note, at least my interpretation, is that contrary to the movie's portrayal, the Lost Generation did not all congregate together that frequently - nor did they have that much money to party and drink. Most of them, including Fitzgerald and Hemingway, struggled financially during this period. If I am wrong, please leave a comment below.
