This is quite literally, the most fabulous and fashionable square in NYC. You got the Plaza Hotel. You got Bergdorf Goodman. You got 5th Avenue. You even got Apple and its transparent cube!
Naturally, the imaginary movie here is conceived as Woody Allen’s take on the chick-flick – a genre he came closest to with Vicky Christina Barcelona, but which, admittedly, hasn’t quite formed part of his oeuvre.
The themes would be quintessential Woody – family, art, philosophy, the city, and more recently, premonitions of death. Add to that shopping, Saks 5th Avenue, and Sarah Jessica Parker as the female lead.
And the title of this movie? POP, in capital letters. It’s a darkly comic take on popular culture and materialism; a commentary on love, friendship and ambition. And how things never turn out the way you plan them to. Oh, of course, the clothes would be fabulous too.
