I’m scratching off purposefully wearing a suit to a movie right now from my list of things I’d never thought I’d do…
Jason on the other hand, is adding to his list of eloquent conversations….
All he could muster was, “I think that’s chicken” when Russell Simmons started a conversation with him in the buffet line of the after-party…very nice Jason. J
Our evening began at the Sunrise Cinema on Houston Street as guests of Andrew Saffir the Founder of the Cinema Society for the screening of the movie The Mysteries of Pittsburg. (Thanks for having us Andrew!)
Have you ever been in a movie theater when people clap at the end of a movie?
I have a friend who likes to shout when this happens that, “The actors aren’t here! Why are you clapping?!?!”
Well, last night when The Mysteries of Pittsburg ended and the crowd clapped I wish my friend had been there because the actors were there!
Sienna Miller, Peter Sarsgaard and Director Rawson Marshall Thurber were all in attendance along with a packed house of celebs and models including Russell Simmons, Julie Henderson, Anna Wintour (the editor of Vogue the women devil wears prada is based on), Olivia Palermo from the City, super model Marcus Schenkenberg and many others to check out the movie.
Very surreal and exciting night for the two of us to walk the red carpet of a movie screening. We had a lot of fun…
Jason and I at the Movie Screen while Rosanno Scotto ducks in the left hand corner!
We got to sit next to two of our favorite TV personalities, Rosanno Scotto of Fox News and Jill Martin broadcaster for the MSG Network.(both are super nice!) We also got the chance to chat briefly with Sienna Miller and Peter Sarsgaard, (who by the way…is not a fencer, but knows one! haha)
The movie is set in Pittsburgh in the early eighties, the story chronicles the last true summer of Art Bechstein’s (JON FOSTER) youth. Stuck in a dead-end job working for his eccentric sometime girlfriend Phlox (MENA SUVARI), and forced into an endless series of airless dinners with his mobster father (NICK NOLTE), Art begins to believe that perhaps he doesn’t even exist at all.

Jason and I give it two enthusiastic fencing swords up!
After the screening, we headed to the after-party the Cooper Square hotel where we met up with our friend Dennis Sneden and spent a few hours chowing down and making some new friends before we headed home around 11pm to get ready for another long day of practice!
