Hamptons Film Fest Getting Full A List Treatment this Year With Julianne Moore, Bill Murray, “Foxcatcher” and More


The Hamptons Film Festival– this weekend, kids– is very A list star filled. They just added Bill Murray, Julianne Moore and Rory Culkin to a list that includes: Patricia Clarkson, Laura Dern, Mark Ruffalo, Joel Schumacher, Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, Bennett Miller, Jean-Marc Vallée, Oren Moverman, Jake Paltrow, Kaitlyn Dever, Caleb Landry Jones, Lola Kirke, Tye Sheridan, Bruce Greenwood, Al Maysles, Iris Apfel,  and Ann Dowd.

Among the films: “Birdman,” “Foxcatcher,” “St. Vincent,” “Wild,” “Still Alice,” and “The Imitation Game”– all potential Oscar nominees. Not bad. There are parties all over town, and plenty of Q & A’s. “Imitation Game” is the winner of this year’s Sloan Award for Science, as well. Also I think everyone’s excited to see Sara Colangelo’s “Little Accidents” starring Elizabeth Banks, Boyd Holbrook, and Chloë Sevigny.

Me, I’ll be at Nick and Toni’s, I hope, if I can get a seat at the bar. That’s where the stars will be.

PS The still shot in this story is not of Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore on a bench in front of Babette’s, but it could be!
