The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off tonight with a pretty un-indie (and un-Tribeca—it’s at the Ziegfeld!) selection: a red-carpet screening of The Five-Year Engagement, starring grown-man Muppet fan Jason Segel and British rose Emily Blunt as a couple who just can’t pull the trigger on a wedding. Yes, it’s another Judd Apatow film about a childlike dope who refuses to eschew his slackerdom for a cool, together lady, but this one is different, probably! The cast includes a number of talented actresses, including Mad Men’s Allison Brie and Australian Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver. Hey, maybe Mr. Apatow learned something about talented ladies while producing Girls! (You’ve heard of Girls, right?)
Ziegfeld Theatre, 141 West 54th Street, 7:30 p.m. Invitation only.
