ISMAEL'S GHOSTS TO BE RELEASED MARCH 23 IN NYC


ISMAEL'S GHOSTS



Legendary filmmaker Arnaud Desplechin (A CHRISTMAS TALE, KINGS & QUEENS, MY GOLDEN DAYS) opened the 2017 Cannes Film Festival with a truncated version of the intoxicatingly circuitous ISMAEL'S GHOSTS, starring César and Lumiere winner Mathieu Amalric, Cannes Best Actress winner Charlotte Gainsbourg and Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard. A full-length Director's Cut of the film - 20 minutes longer and markedly different in tone from the Cannes version - played at the New York Film Festival and will be released by Magnolia Pictures on Friday, March 23 in New York, with a national rollout to follow.


Twenty-one years ago, she ran away. Now, twenty-one years later, Carlotta (Cotillard) is back from the void. But Ismael (Amalric) has been busy rebuilding a life for himself with Sylvia (Gainsbourg) and working on his next feature film. As Ismael's trials and tribulations unfurl, so too do those of the film-within-a-film's protagonist: the idle, funny and reckless diplomat Ivan Dédalus (Louis Garrel).


The character is a nod to the ghost of another of Desplechin's creations, the brother of Paul Dédalus, three-time hero of MY SEX LIFE... OR HOW I GOT INTO AN ARGUMENT, A CHRISTMAS TALE and MY GOLDEN DAYS. With ISMAEL'S GHOSTS, Desplechin returns once more to the past and proves yet again that his brand of genius lies in his ability to find light in the darkest of places.

'SEDUCED AND ABANDONED' AT CANNES FESTIVAL

****
2013 CANNES FILM FESTIVAL
****

Michele Herbert With Marla And Hayley Helene



Hilaria Thomas And Alec Baldwin



Michael Mailer And Denise Rich



James And Andrei Toback
James Toback and Michael Mailer’s feature documentary “Seduced and Abandoned,” starring Alec Baldwin, premiered as a Special Screening in the Official Selection at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Following the premiere at the Salle du Soixantième Theatre in Cannes, James Toback and Michael Mailer celebrated with an exclusive dinner and after party, hosted by Denise Rich, aboard her private yacht M/Y Lady Joy, in the Old Port of Cannes. The three were joined by executive producers Alan Helene, Larry Herbert and Neal Schneider, their wives Marla Helene, Michele Herbert and Stacy Schneider, as well as what some say may be the next generation of filmmakers in Andrei Toback, Hayley Helene and Loren Herbert.



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.
