Actress Ellen Page made her name as the tough, conflicted pregnant teen in Juno.  Actress Greta Gerwig zoomed up through the indie film world into Greenberg with Ben Stiller.  Lola Versus.  Arthur, with Russell Brand.  Now, Ellen Page and Greta Gerwig are starring in the latest Woody Allen film, To Rome With Love.

Woody Allen’s been on a European tour lately.  London.  Paris.  Barcelona.  Now the Eternal city, Rome, with Gerwig and Page.  They’re young.  They’re smart.  They’re hot.  And they’re with us.

This hour, On Point:  Ellen Page and Greta Gerwig on Rome, Allen and the movies.
