Penelope Cruz and Woody Allen
“A Look Back” is a series of posts we here at Caughtonset.com feature weekly. It’s as simple as the title makes it sound. Each Friday we will take “A Look Back” to the set of a newly released film. Look at pictures from the set today, then watch the movie tonight.
Today we take a look back to the making of To Rome With Love, Woody Allen's follow up to 2011's Midnight in Paris. To Rome stars Woody Allen, Penelope Cruz, Ellen Page, Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg and Roberto Benigni. To Rome With Love will not be a serious contender to win the box office this weekend as it is only opening in 5 theaters in New York and Los Angeles. Total. For more on the films that will be battling we go to Ray Subers at Boxofficemojo.com:

"Brave is set to open in a Pixar-record 4,164 locations, 2,790 of which will include 3D shows. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter will also try to battle its way to solid grosses at 3,106 theaters (2,497 with 3D), but its target demographic is too narrow for it to really break out. Meanwhile, Focus Features is releasing apocalyptic comedy/drama Seeking a Friend for the End of the World at 1,618 venues, while To Rome with Love, Woody Allen's follow-up to Midnight in Paris, launches in a handful of theaters in New York and Los Angeles."
Did you know Pixar had a string of nine-straight $200 million openings and they only have 1 movie in it's entire history to receive a "rotten" rating on Rotten Tomatoes? If you didn't you obviously didn't read Mr. Subers story before this one. Don't feel bad though, because now you do know and knowing is half the battle.

Josh Pais, Lynn Shelton and Ellen Page
Ellen Page, who according to her twitter account is a "tiny Canadian," posted a couple pictures over the weekend from Seattle, Washington on the set of her new movie Touchy Feely. Along with the pictures of herself with co-star Josh Pais and director Lynn Shelton, she tweeted:
"On the set of Touchy Feely with Lynn Shelton and @joshpais"

Two days later Page followed up with a tweet about wrapping up filming. It must have been a pretty short script. I guess she also could have been filming for a while but just didn't tell us anything. Now I'm a little upset with the dimunitive Canadian. Who am I kidding? I could never stay mad at Ellen Page, she gave us Juno. No release date has been set for Touchy Feely.

Jesse Eisenberg and Ellen Page
Jesse Eisenberg and Ellen Page are spotted filming Bop Decameron (note: the title has since been changed to To Rome with Love) in Rome, Italy earlier this week (July 26). They make a cute pair. I wonder if they're a couple in the film?
Jesse was also spotted earlier this year on the set of his new film 30 Minutes or Less - check out some pics here.
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Ellen revealed that she's not a fan of celebrity gossip:
"The things people wrote about me when Juno came out... You know no one should be allowed to write that about a 21-year-old kid. People treat [celebrity gossip] like it's a joke. 'Let's splatter their face on newspapers every day and show them being taken out of their house on a stretcher.' It's, like, why don't we ask why this is happening? It makes me very angry."
