On Broadway, a dazzling performance by Frank Langella as ruthless financier is the reason to see Man and Boy, by Terence Rattigan, at the American Airlines Theatre. He deserves a Tony nomination.
 
Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Bassett, two extraordinary actors, are also the reason to see The Mountaintop, by Katori Hall, about the last night of Martin Luther King, Jr before his death in Memphis. It is a fantasy. Opening night attracted many celebrities like Magic Johnson, Cicely Tyson, Ben Vereen and Alicia Keys, and the party at Espace was wonderful,
 
Off Broadway, Linda Lavin is superb as a mother you would not like to have in The Lyons, by Nicky Silver, supported by a fine cast. It is a very funny play on a serious topic. The opening night party was filled with guests like Steven Pasquale, Cady Huffman, Adriane Lenox and Patricia Clarkson among others at Jack Bistro & Bar.
 
We Live Here, by Zoe Kazan, celebrated its opening night at Beacon with a sex member cast, headed by Amy Irving, with many stars in attendance like John Gallagher Jr, Natasha Lyonne and Heidi Schreck.
 
Any Given Monday, by Bruce Graham, celebrated its opening night the same night at a charming restaurant, Bistro 60. As well as the cast headed by Michael Mastro, I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Manuel Uzhca and his lovely wife Sonia.
 
Irving Berlin: Rags to Ritzes was the title of the concert by the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall, with guest conductor Jack Everly and five splendid performers, headed by Ashley Brown and Hugh Panaro. It was a lovely concert of the magnificent music of one of the great American songwriters.
 
Kara DioGuardi hosted a Post-show VIP celebration for the cast of Chicago to support her favorite charities at E & E Grill, a beautiful brand new restaurant next to the theatre on West 49th St.
 
I attended the reception following a Red Bull Theater Benefit Reading of Volpone starring F. Murray Abaham, Richard Easton and Michael Urie. Among the guests were Laila Robins, Robert Cuccioli, Richard Thomas and Daniel Davis. It was a lovely evening.
 
It was a sad, but beautiful memorial for Roger Webster at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, followed by a reception at the Cathedral's Fellowship Hall, where many of his friends gathered afterwards. Jason Grant and R. Couri Hay hosted this special event in memory of a fine person, who will be greatly missed.
 
At the NYFF at Lincoln Center, the final week of screenings continues with My Week with Marilyn, by Simon Curtis, 2011, UK, a very entertaining film, based on the true story about Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) filming The Prince and the Showgirl with Laurence Olivier (Kenneth Branagh) in England. A very young Colin Clark (Eddie Redmayne) has his first job as the Third Assistant Director on the film, and by chance becomes a friend of the star. It is an inside look at the making of the film, plus an engrossing peak into the real, insecure superstar. Williams is superb, well supported by Branagh and Redmayne. It will certainly delight audiences, and will be a contender at Oscar time. A Q & A followed the screening with Curtis, Williams and Redmayne.
 

 


 

 

 
 
 

 
 

 

The Skin I Live In, by Pedro Almodovar, 2011, Spain, is a typical provocative film by the great Spanish filmmaker. It stars a wonderful Antonio Banderas (reunited with his director after an 18-year absence) as a plastic surgeon, kidnapping a lovely Elena Anaya, to perform a skin operation over six years. Their are so many plot twists, that it is impossible to write about them, without ruining the enjoyment of the audience. Footnote, by Joseph Cedar, 2011, Israel, is a fine, intelligent film about the award of a top national prize to a talmudic scholar by mistake. It was supposed to be awarded to his son. It is brilliantly acted and a perceptive look at the relationship between father and son. Both films are highly recommended. 
 
Corman's World:Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel, by Alex Stapleton, 2011, USA, is a wonderful tribute to Roger Corman. Many of his friends, who received their training from this maverick filmmaker like Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard and a remarkably articulate and funny Jack Nicholson make this documentary a must see film of the festival. I admire Roger, and so will the viewer after seeing this entertaining film.

Goodbye First Love, by Mia Hansen-Love, 2011, France/Germany, is a delightful film which follows a 15-year-old high school girl (Lola Creton) during her first love affair and we see her develop into a more mature lady over eight years. Lola gives an outstanding performance. Both she and the director attended a Q & A after the screening. I really enjoyed this sweet and touching film.
 

The four week press screenings ended with The Artist, by Michael Hazanavicius, 2011, France, a homage to the silent film era. It is an exquisite recreation in back and white of a silent film star (a marvelous performance by Jean Dujardin), whose fame declines as talking films take over the film industry. A rising young star, (an excellent performance by Berenice Bejo), replaces him in the hearts of movie fans. A small adorable dog (Uggy) steals every scene in which it appears. This is a charming film for cinephiles and dog lovers alike. Finally, one of the most enjoyable films of a month of mainly excellent films is The Descendants, by Alexander Payne, 2011, USA, starring a superb George Clooney, as a father with a dying wife, trying to take over the responsibilities of a father to two young daughters, a rebellious 17-year-old (Shailene Woodley) and precocious 10-year-old (Amara Miller). It is a clever, intelligent and perceptive look at a family during one of the deepest crises they can experience in life, filmed with lush photography in Hawaii, the most glorious place on earth, in my opinion. This film should also be a contender at Oscar time, and Clooney gives one of his greatest performances of his career. Do not miss this film. It is one of the highlights of the festival.
