Claire Danes, Toni Collette, Vanessa Redgrave, Patrick Wilson, Hugh Dancy, Natasha Richardson, Mamie Gummer, Eileen Atkins, Meryl Streep, Glenn Close.
One hell of a cast list eh? An ensemble any director would be proud to work with, and this time it was “Fateless” director Lajos Koltai who won the jackpot.
All star in Focus Features “Evening”, a kind of “The Notebook”-esque tale exploring the romantic past and emotional present of Ann Grant (Vanessa Redgrave) and her daughters, Constance (Natasha Richardson) and Nina (Toni Collette).
As Ann lays dying, she remembers, and is moved to convey to her daughters, the defining moments in her life 50 years prior, when she was a young woman (Claire Danes). Patrick Wilson plays Harris, the man Ann loves in the 1950s and never forgets.
The film opens in cinemas June 15th and today we’re proud to help premiere the official one-sheet for the ensemble drama based on Susan Minot’s acclaimed book and co-adapted by “The Hours” scribe Michael Cunningham:
