ALSO: DE PALMA AT AUTHORS NIGHT FOR EAST HAMPTON LIBRARY
Brian De Palma was among the guests at the New York premiere of Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig's Mistress America, which took place last Wednesday, August 12, at Landmark Sunshine Cinema. According to Examiner.com, other guests included Jake Paltrow, Wes Anderson, Darren Aronofsky, John Cameron Mitchell, Taylor Hackford, Whit Stilman, Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Salman Rushdie, James Murphy, Griffin Dunne, Saffron Burrows, and Wallace Shawn.
Following the screening, the filmmakers and guests headed to the after party at The Boom Boom Room at Top of the Standard. The pictures at left were taken at the party by Marion Curtis, and are posted at StarTraks Photo. In the top two photos: Jake Paltrow, Brian De Palma, Noah Baumbach, and Wes Anderson together. The middle photo (#3): Saffron Burrows and De Palma. The fourth photo is of Jake Paltrow and his wife Taryn Simon (the latter is the artist who took the photo that appears at the end of De Palma's Redacted). And the last photo is, of course, Baumbach and De Palma.
The morning after this party, it was announced that De Palma would be honored with the Glory to the Filmmaker Award at next month's Venice Film Festival, with the world premiere of the Baumbach and Paltrow documentary on De Palma to follow immediately afterward.
A few days before the Baumbach premiere, Sonia Moskowitz snapped this photo (at right) of De Palma and an unnamed friend on August 8, at the Authors Night for the East Hampton Library.
