Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -February 1, 2014

 



Aubrey Reuben




On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
February 1, 2014



 

01-28-14 Diane Lane and honoree Cherry Jones at the Post Ceremony Theater Hall of Fame 2013 Dinner at the New York Friars Club. 57 East 55th St. Monday night 01-27-14.  photo by:  aubrey reuben

01-28-14 Diane Lane and honoree Cherry Jones at the Post Ceremony Theater Hall of Fame 2013 Dinner at the New York Friars Club. 57 East 55th St. Monday night 01-27-14
 
Off-Broadway, Intimacy, by Thomas Bradshaw, is a very graphic, almost pornographic play about three families living next to each other in suburbia. Their sexual desires are revealed, as a young son wants to make a pornographic film, using the members of the three families. There is much nudity and simulated sex acts in this very provocative play. The opening night party took place at Rosebud NYV at OUT Hotel with guests like cast member Ella Dershowitz's father Alan Dershowitz, the famous lawyer, and mother Carolyn Cohen, Halley Feiffer, Amy Irving and Morgan Spector.

 
Dragons, book, music and lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, was presented in Musicals in Mufti by the York Theatre Company. It is a pleasant fantasy musical, a fairy tale about a town ruled by a dragon, which is destroyed by a knight named Lancelot. It featured a thirteen member cast, who were congratulated after the opening night performance with a reception in the music room at the theater.

 
The Theater Hall of Fame dinner took place at the New York Friars Club after the ceremony at the Gershwin Theatre. Among the 2013 honorees attending the dinner were Ellen Burstyn, David Hays, Cherry Jones, Lynne Meadow, George C. Wolfe and Jerry Zaks. Joel Grey was the Master of Ceremonies. Among the guests were Pia Lindstrom, Diane Lane, Betty Buckley, Lois Smith, Lee Roy Reams and Dana Ivey.It was a festive occasion.

 
The 2nd Annual Luce Awards Ceremony and reception took place at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom Law Firm at 4 Times Square. I met James Luce of the James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation, which honors young leaders working to Better Humanity in various countries, and the Sri Lanken Ambassador to the United Nations H. E. Dr. Politha Kohona, a charming gentleman, who is a cricket fan like me, and had just returned from Australia, where he saw two matches between Australia and England. It was a lovely event.

 
A wonderful exhibition Robert Farber: Farberesque: From Pensive to Provocative was presented by Cavalier Gallery, 3 West 57th St. The opening night sales were to benefit the National Meningitis Association. A large crowd attended the opening night reception to admire  his splendid artwork. 

 
Film Society at Lincoln Center is presenting Film Comments Selects February 17-27. Our Sunhi, by Hong Sang-soo, South Korea, 2013, is a charming tale of a young female student, who wants to go to graduate school in the United States to pursue a filmmaking career. Returning to her college for a recommendation letter, she reawakens the love of three former colleagues. Their pursuit of her is a subtle reminder that what a woman desires is not necessarily what men want. It is a delightful, clever, low key, enjoyable film.

Fat Shaker, by Mohammad Shirvani, Iran, 2013, is an annoying, incoherent film, about a repulsive, obese father, who makes his deaf-mute son, virtually, a slave to his demands, who he constantly abuses and beats, and even locks him in the trunk of car. It is a brutal film, with disgusting scenes from beginning to end.

 
Cherchez Hortense, by Pascal Bonitzer, France, 2012, is about a professor (Jean-Pierre Bacri), who is asked to do favor to help an illegal immigrant., while his family life is in shambles. Kristin Scott Thomas plays his wife, a stage director, who eventually separates from him. It is an intelligent film, a glimpse at an upper class Parisian family, with universal problems. The acting is first rate.

 
Felony, by Matthew Saville, Australia, 2013, is a psychological study of a detective, under the influence of alcohol, who is in an accident with a nine-year old boy on a bicycle. As the investigation continues, we watch his mental deterioration, affecting his family life. It is a serious honest look at a tragedy, which is very prevalent in New York today. The acting is exceptional, especially by Tom Wilkinson as the detective's supervisor, who tries to help him.

 
Me and You, by Bernardo Bertolucci, Italy, 2012, is about a 14-year -old boy (a remarkable Jacopo Olmo Antinori), who does not like to socialize with anyone, and who hides in the basement storage room of his family's apartment building for a week, when supposedly he is on a school skiing trip. His drug-addict half-sister (an excellent Tea Falco), whom he hardly knows, shows up in the room, and a unlikely relationship evolves between them. It is a psychological study of two lost souls, whicch is extremely well acted.

 
I saw another  Oscar Nominated best picture American Hustle, by  David O. Russell., USA, 2013, which received nine other well deserved nominations. Based on the actual Abscam scandal, that entrapped corrupt politicians, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, playing the fictitious characters in the film, were superb. It was a very entertaining film. I also saw Labor Day, by Jason Reitman, USA, 2014, about a depressed divorcee (Kate Winslet), held hostage in her home, with her 13-year-old son, by an escaped prisoner. They fall in love over the Labor Day weekend. It is an overlong, slow-moving, humorless, unbelievable film.
