SUPPER SUITE BY STK Pre-Premiere Party for Tribeca Film Festival
On Thursday, April 24th the pre-party festivities continue with the final Supper Suite by STK Pre-Premiere party for the film THIRD PERSON. Supper Suite by STK concluded seven days of pre and post-premiere receptions and junkets for new New York independent cinema with the pre premiere party for auteur Paul Haggis' THIRD PERSON. Joining Haggis at the party were Sting, Griffin Dunne, Willam Dafoe, director Alex Gibney, and Tiffany Chen, along with Sony Pictures Classics co-presidents Michael Barker and Tom Bernard as well as reality TV star and tattoo expert Megan Massacre, among others.
The invitation only event consisted of an intimate group whom were able to enjoy music, wine, specialty cocktails, delectable hors d'oeuvres, and dessert served throughout the event. The evening was hosted by FIJI water and Dobel Tequila. The atmosphere was lounge-like with friendly staff and chic décor.
The film was held at BMCC Tribeca PAC Theatre in Tribeca. Veteran screenwriter and director Paul Haggis (Crash) brings to the screen a calculated vision of the drama of love. Three stories set in cities known for romance—New York, Rome, and Paris—take raw and personal twists as the characters grapple with the difficulties of modern relationships. From the on-again, off-again relationship of a recently separated man and his mistress, to a mother accused of attempting to kill her own child, the tribulations of everyday life wax and wane for each of the individuals. With a heavyweight cast including James Franco, Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody, and Maria Bello, Haggis once again weaves an intricate narrative out of seemingly separate worlds.
