On the Set: Match Point

We got a request a few weeks ago to please, pretty please, do an On the Set feature of the 2005 drama/thriller Match Point by Woody Allen. With having that said, we've pulled together photos of Chris and Chloe's posh London loft ($$$!!!) along with a few photos of Nola's romantic studio ($...). Check 'em out after the jump...

Quick plot summary for those of you who haven't seen or forgot the movie to give you a little bit of context: Tennis coach Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) befriends exceedingly wealthy Tom Hewett and in turn marries Tom's sister Chloe which has more to do with financial security and status than love. Wilton meets Tom's American fiancée and struggling actress, Nola (Scarlett Johansson), and has a torrid affair with her.

The Wilton's Loft

The spacious loft where Chris and Chloe Wilton live. The open space living room includes a large L-shape sectional facing the windows, a desk tucked away near the staircase, and stairs leading up to the bedroom loft.

This was Woody Allen's first film shot entirely in London. The loft's huge wall of floor-to-ceiling windows gives a breathtaking panoramic view of the River Thames.

Chloe and her family are portrayed as patrons of the arts, constantly attending operas, theater, and art galleries. As such, the loft reflects more of Chloe's tastes, decorated with eclectic but expensive pieces.

The credenza, directly to the right of the short entryway hall. It's an interesting mix of personal photos and artwork.

We couldn't find a great shot of the bedroom loft, but it's pretty spare. It looks like panels of fabric cover the back wall, giving the bedroom a softer feel despite the hard edges and lines of the headboard, lamp, and nightstand.

To the kitchen.

The galley kitchen is relatively small compared to the rest of the place, with open glass shelving.

The dining area. Behind Chloe, there's a peek at their outside patio area. Also, we love her dishes.

Nola's Flat While the Wiltons' loft is all high-end luxury (or, as a friend put it, "It's like a glass cage! With amazing views!"), Nola's studio is all lush, romantic, and personable. Plus, the rose-pink paint certainly doesn't hurt.

Nolas' flat opens directly to her bed.

A pretty fireplace decorated with mementos and photos, and a gorgeous curvy glass table lamp accompanies a vase of romantic roses.

Technically, this isn't Nola's door; it's her elderly neighbors. But the building where Nola lives has beautiful stained glass and intricate wrought iron railings with an old-fashioned elevator.
