(NEW YORK) Last night, The Cinema Society and Brooks Brothers hosted a screening of Girl Most Likely at Landmark Sunshine Cinema, bringing out the flick’s stars, Kristen Wiig, Matt Dillon, Darren Criss and June Diane Raphael, to stroll the tapis rouge, as other guests (friends, fans, etc.) listened for the one-liners being thrown around by the contagiously comical cast. Guests such as Vanessa Williams, Amber Tamblyn, Graham Norton, Rachel Dratch, Padma Lakshmi, Rachel Roy, Nicole Miller, Jenna Fischer, Judah Friedlander, Olivia Palermo, and Johannes Huebl. Filming the movie was an exercise in “focused goofing around,” according to Wiig. The screening’s playful vibe certainly reflected that feel.
The movie, written by Michelle Morgan, stars Wiig as a troubled middle-aged women, just trying to make it in the world. As lead “mean girl” in the film, Raphael explains,” the movie allows you to see women who are extremely complicated and are not the model of that ‘studio system girl’ who just wants to get married: they have issues and real lives.” Throughout the film, laughs echoed in the jam-packed theater. The aisles were even filled with people standing for the entirety of the film, popcorn and soda in hand, when seats ran dry. (Verdict: the film was that good!) Following the film, the cast and guests flocked to the Hotel Americano where the laughs continued as everyone enjoyed glass after glass of Kim Crawford Wines. What better way to start your week than with some comic relief and a bit of vino?
