Allen quickly re-wrote the script, which was Emily mortimer nude fakes set in New York, for a British setting. Critics in the United States praised the film and its British setting, and welcomed it as a return to form for Allen.
In contrast, reviewers from the United Kingdom treated Match Point less favourably, finding fault with the locations and especially the idiom of the dialogue. Chris Wilton, a recently retired tennis professional, is taken on as an instructor at an upmarket club in London.
He strikes up a friendship with a wealthy pupil, Tom Hewett, after discovering their common affinity for opera. Tom's older sister, Chloe, is smitten with Chris, and the two begin dating.

He discreetly asks for her number, and they begin an affair. While Emily mortimer nude fakes is spending time with his wife's family, Nola calls to inform him that she is pregnant.

On leaving, he calls Nola on her mobile to tell her he has good news for her. He goes to Nola's building and gains entry into the apartment of her neighbor, Mrs. Eastby, who he shoots and kills and then stages a burglary by ransacking the rooms and stealing jewelry and drugs. As Nola returns he shoots her in the stairwell.

Detective Mike Banner invites Chris Emily mortimer nude fakes an interview in relation to the murder. Beforehand, Chris throws Mrs. Eastby's jewelry and drugs into the river, but by chance her ring bounces on the railing and falls to the pavement.
At the police station, Chris lies about his relationship with Nola, but Banner surprises him with her diary, in which he is featured extensively. He confesses his affair but denies any link to the murder, and appeals to the detectives not to involve him further in their investigation as news of the affair may end his marriage just as he and his wife are expecting a baby.

He replies that his crimes, though wrong, had been "necessary", and that he is able to suppress his guilt. At the same time, Banner dreams that Chris committed the murders. His theory is discredited by his partner, Dowd, who informs him that a drug peddler found murdered on the streets had Mrs. Eastby's ring in his pocket.

The script was originally set in Emily mortimer nude fakes Hamptonsa wealthy enclave in New York, but was transferred to London when Allen found financing for the film there.
In an interview with The GuardianAllen explained that he was allowed "the same kind of creative liberal attitude that I'm used to", in London. He complained that the American studio system was not interested in making small films: Scarlett Johansson was offered the part, and accepted, but the character had to be re-written as an American.
According to Allen, "It was not a problem It took about an hour. Filming took place in London in the summer of over a seven-week schedule. The restaurant scene was shot at the Covent Garden Hotel. The film's opening voiceover from Wilton introduces its themes of chance and fate, which he characterises as simple luck, to him all-important. The sequence establishes the protagonist as an introvert, a man who mediates his experience of the world through deliberation, Emily mortimer nude fakes positions the film's subjective perspective through his narrative eyes.
Charalampos Goyios argued that this hero, as an opera lover, maintains a sense of distance from the outer world and that ramifications therein pale in comparison to the purity of interior experience.
The film is a debate with Fyodor Dostoyevsky 's Crime and Punishmentwhich Wilton is seen reading early on, identifying him with the anti-hero Raskolnikov. Wilton is a brooding loner who kills a poor girl who loves him because he considers his interests superior to those around him, knows little guilt, and avoids detection through luck.
Allen signals his intentions with more superficial similarities: Allen argues, unlike Dostoyevsky, that there is neither God, nor punishment, nor love to provide redemption.
The theme of parody and reversal of Dostoyevsky's motifs and subject matter has been visited by Allen before, in his film Love and Death. Allen revisits Emily mortimer nude fakes of the themes he had explored in Crimes and Misdemeanorssuch as the existence of justice in the universe.

Eventually, he learns to ignore his guilt and go on as though nothing has happened. Philip French compared the two films' plots and themes in The Observerand characterised Match Point' s as a "clever twist on the themes of chance and fate".
Money is an important motivator for the characters: That family's secure position is demonstrated by their large country estate, and, early on in their relationships, both prospective spouses are supported by Mr.
