Also in attendance were Paris Hilton and model boyfriend River Viiperi, Brandon Davis, Grace Potter and Matt Burr of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, De Grisogono founder Fawaz Gruosi, British pop singer Sir Cliff Richard, super-agent Jeff Berg, artist Anne McNally and activist Patricia Duff, as well as Jean Pigozzi and Taki Theodoracopulos, who both appeared in the film.
The star-studded affair began with an intimate dinner for 50, which included heartfelt speeches from the producers, graciously thanking family, friends and colleagues for their support throughout the making of “Seduced and Abandoned.” Shortly after dinner, the after party commenced, and continued into the early morning with guests in high spirits – thanks in part to a steady supply of U'Luvka Vodka and 100 cases of Perrier-Jouët, which were finished off by the end of the night.
Produced by Michael Mailer, Alec Baldwin and James Toback and executive-produced by Alan Helene, Larry Herbert, Neal Schneider and Morris Levy, “Seduced and Abandoned” celebrates the adventures of filmmaking, following Baldwin and Toback on a troublesome and often hilarious journey at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, as they attempt to secure financing for their next feature film. In this behind-the-scenes look at the Cannes Film Festival, Baldwin and Toback interface with a wide variety of Cannes denizens from movie stars, directors, producers, distributors, financiers, personalities and even the director of the film festival himself.
“Seduced and Abandoned” features fascinating portraits of Martin Scorsese, Bernardo Bertolucci, Ryan Gosling, Jessica Chastain, Francis Ford Coppola, Roman Polanski, Berenice Bejo, Diane Kruger and James Caan, as well as interviews with Brett Ratner, Graydon Carter, Taki Theodoracopulos, Johnny Pigozzi, Ron Meyer and Diablo Cody.
The North American television rights to “Seduced and Abandoned,” which was produced by Michael Mailer Films, were recently acquired by HBO.
