My Tribeca Film Festival Diary: Day 3

Day 3 began with Sissy Spacek's latest film Lake City. I was really excited for this film, not only because I think Sissy's brilliant, but also because Rebecca Romijn and Dave Matthews were appearing in the film. This meant it had to be fun, right? The flick, which features a mother and son who must reconcile their past in order to save themselves from violent criminals, was good, but I didn't think it was anything special. I found it a bit typical and Lifetime-esque, and it was hard to care too much about the characters. Again, it wasn't bad; it was just simply good.

Later I headed over--in the pouring rain, leaving my hair a mess!--to the War, Inc. press junket with Marissa Tomei and Hilary Duff. I can't wait to tell you about it, but you'll have to wait until later in the week, when I'm able to transcribe the interviews!

Finally I went to the best movie I've seen yet at Tribeca: Bart Got a Room. The comedy starred William H. Macy and Cheryl Hines, who played a very wacky soon-to-be ex-husband and wife. The clock counts down as their son Danny tries to find a date for prom. William H. Macy was a riot and the casting of the kids in the film was terrific. I also loved all the little details, like the tons of old people in Florida (where the film took place) and the crazy relationships between the adults. I truly think this is a film for people of all ages, and if you want to laugh, you definitely need to see it.

Tomorrow I'm heading to a panel led by Christiane Amanpour and then an afterparty for Matthew Broderick's new film Finding Amanda. Fingers crossed that Sarah Jessica Parker shows up!
