Match Point with Woody Allen
Woody Allen's 2005 Tennis drama was filmed in part here
Location: 64-84 Clarence Gate Gardens, Glentworth Street, NW1
Description: 'Match Point' is a 2005 dramatic thriller film written and directed by Woody Allen, and starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Scarlett Johansson, Emily Mortimer, Matthew Goode, Brian Cox and Penelope Wilton.
Rhys Meyers' character marries into a wealthy family, but his social position is threatened by an affair and the subsequent pregnancy of his brother in law's ex-girlfriend, played by Johansson.
And so to this location...Nola played by Johansson lived here and it seems is defensively apologetic about it...
Whilst ambitious social climber Chris played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, is on his way to rid himself of his inconvenient past!
Go find because Woody is a bit of a genius!
