Last night The Cinema Society, along with American Express, hosted Tribeca Film’s dark drama, Detachment. The movie, starring Adrien Brody, James Caan, Lucy Liu, Marcia Gay Harden, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, and breakout teen Sami Gayle, marks the first major non-documentary by director Tony Kaye since American History X (which he famously tried to take his name off of because of his fight with New Line Cinema).
As befitting a film about substitute teachers, the movie has been described (positively) as “incredibly depressing.” This marks a 180 departure for the trio of young producers of Paper Street Films, whose last movie was the incredibly uplifting HappyThankYouMorePlease.)
So after such a heavy screening, what was there to do but party incredibly hard at The Standard, East Village. While attendees mingled with the famous and a not-to-be-named socialite/model complained about the bar’s lack of Red Bull (“If I just drink red wine, I’ll get sleepy!” she proclaimed, making us think for a minute she planned on mixing a Merlot with the energy drink), the party extended to an after-after-party at Acme on Great Jones Street for some 80s dancing and Patron shots.
