Diane Von Furstenberg and Philip Glass hosted a private screening of the upcoming Hollywood film, "The Reader" [warning: embedded autoplay filez], Thursday night at NYC's Tribeca Grand Hotel, in advance of the January 9, 2009 USA release date. The attendance list included Glass co-collaborator/protégé Nico Muhly (obvs, as the score-wizard), Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, and Emmy Rossum. Too bad "The Reader" star Kate Winslet didn't stop by...homegirl is looking ~stellar~. Check her out at the NYC premiere a couple weeks ago, rawking a Herve Leger dress & Roger Vivier heels.
Screw Glass & DVF...East Coast bebbe-phresh Nico Muhly was the man of the hour, having scored the twinkling, haunting composition for the movie's soundtrack (which is already available on iTunes).
"The Reader" is based on the 1995 novel by German law professor Bernhard Schlink, and directed by The Hours's Stephen Daldry (and with The Hours's score having been composed by Philip Glass, we now have Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon in full effect). The film centers on lead Ralph Fiennes (as Michael Berg) and Kate Winslet (as Hanna Schmitz) and their complex, timeless love story, set in post WWII-Germany. With Nazis. Nazis? We hate those guys.
