Watch Radio Days
- 1 hr 25 min
Radio Days is Woody Allen's 1987 love song to his childhood, growing up in Brooklyn during World War II and the tremendous impact radio had on him, his family and the world around him. Though Woody Allen doesn't appear in the movie, he is the engaging and often very funny narrator, reminiscing about a time when radio provided almost every aspect of entertainment. The movie stars Mia Farrow and Dianne Wiest as well as many other Woody Allen "regulars." It received two Academy Award nominations, one for best screenplay and one for best art direction. Nostalgic but never bogged down in sentiment, the movie bounces around the different people of Allen's childhood by focusing on what they listened to. Allen as a kid loved the Masked Avenger show. His love sick single aunt was glued to stories of the lives of Hollywood's elite while his older female cousin loved Carmen Miranda songs while she wore hats of fruit she made herself.
