Red Carpet Interviews, including Adrien Brody, at Tribeca Film Festival 2011!

3 May

Hey folks take a look at what we are up to with Women’s Mafia and Cognac of Long Island Exchange!

Keep your eyes on CMF, there’s more to come!

TV Host, Cognac Wellerlane, interviews the cast from the film “Detachment“, including Adrien Brody and Blythe Danner, at the Movie Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival!

Director Tony Kaye (American History X), creates a unique and stylized portrait of the American education system seen through the eyes of substitute teacher Henry Barthes (Adrien Brody). Henry wanders in and out of students’ lives, imparting knowledge where he can in the short time he has with them. Then a new assignment places him at a failing public school run by Principal Dearden (Marcia Gay Harden) and alters his insular world. Henry’s stoic front is slowly chipped away by three women who impact his view on life: a student (newcomer Betty Kaye), a fellow teacher (Christina Hendricks), and a teenage runaway (Sami Gayle).
