On Jan. 17, Midtown hotspot Forty Four at The Royalton Hotel played host to the official Coriolanus premiere after-party. The event, sponsored by Chopard and Dewar’s, was chic and intimate. Guests dined on cheese and charcuterie while sipping custom cocktails crafted with Dewar’s.
The cast, including director and lead actor Ralph Fiennes and producer Colin Tana made toasts to the success of the film; an adaptation of Shakespeare’s 17th century tragedy. The mood was light-hearted while the cast mingled with fellow A-listers, including Hollywood action man Liam Neeson and leading ladies Laura Linney and Susan Sarandon. Stars of the film, Vanessa Redgrave and Jessica Chastain-who wore a Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2012 gown with black and white Chantilly lace-were in attendance.
Also in attendance was premiere host Bob Balaban, along with John Benjamin Hickey, Alice St. Clair, Gina Gershon, Paul Haggis, Mickey Sumner, John Buffalo Mailer, Celine Rattray, Patti Smith, Fisher Stevens, Trudie Styler and Thomas Langmann.
