Woody Allen: A Documentary

Iconic writer, director, actor, comedian, and musician Woody Allen allows his life and creative process to be documented on-camera for the first time.

Features interviews with Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson, Diane Keaton, Sean Penn, Chris Rock, Mira Sorvino, Naomi Watts, Dianne Wiest, Owen Wilson, Martin Scorsese, and many more.
