Looking for an equally salacious and hilarious way to spend an hour and a half? Pedro Almodovar is your man, and his latest flick, I’m So Excited! (yes, that was an intentional exclamation point, not just Daily-ese), is your must-see. The Cinema Society hosted a screening of the riotous yet politically mulling film, along with Girard-Perregaux and DeLeÃ³n, at Landmark Sunshine Cinemas. The film’s castmates Blanca Suarez, Miguel Angel Silvestre and Carlos Areces were on hand, though, alas, Penelope Cruz and Antonio Banderas, whose cameos take up all of two or so minutes at the very beginning of the movie, did not make it. No worries! According to Almodovar, Suarez is the next Cruz. Duly noted.
Need a reminder to appreciate your parents? Go see What Maisie Knew, a filmic adaptation of the Henry James novel penned in the 1890s out in NYC theaters today, which was shown at a Cinema Society, Tod’s, and GQ screening at Landmark Sunshine Cinemas last night. Set in privileged, loft-laden environs in downtown Manhattan, the flick, directed by David Siegel and Scott McGehee, depicts a pretty awful (read: self-absorbed, manipulative, and entirely inconsistent) set of ‘rents, played by has-been rocker Julianne Moore and art dealer Steve Coogan. More specifically, the bitter, fight-fueled disintegration of their unmarried family situation, as understood through the eyes of their adorable daughter, Maisie (the very talented Onata Aprile). Luckily, a set of secondary significant others (played by Alexander Skarsgard and gorge Scottish newbie, Joanna Vanderham) come to the rescue.
