It was a whirlwind trip to the Big Apple for this premiere but worth every second of the few spent there. Landed the morning of the screening, checked into the hotel around the corner in Chelsea, grabbed a bite and was in the theatre by late afternoon. Andy Goddard's acute direction, Chris Seager's apt cinematography, coupled with the chilling performance of Eddie Marsan make the movie. I knew how much Andy was invested in the story he was telling before I stepped on set the first day. He sent me an email about my character. Not giving me performance notes or suggestions, but a framing of what my role meant as it related to the time period and more significantly, the structure of the relationships of the characters in the movie. It was personal, encouraging, enlightening and telling of how much Andy cared about telling this story. Add to that being able to share a few days on set working opposite Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel and Haley Bennett, and it's easy to call this experience one to remember. Then there was the always fantastic wardrobe options from Sarah Mae Burton. Sewn-in sweater-shirt combo? Yes. Might be worth watching the movie just for that. After the screening it was over to the fashion district for a rooftop after party, reminiscing with Chris Seager and his lovely wife, along with talented young actor Radek Lord, costume designer Sarah Mae Burton and producer-writer Susan Boyd. Dinner at Balthazar after the after-party, one mare day in the city to take in another movie at the fest, and then it was back home. Big thanks to D. Lynn Meyers, casting extraordinaire, for putting me up for the role in the first place and trusting in me to deliver. No release date as of yet for the movie but it is absolutely worth the watch.
