It only seemed like everyone and his mother showed for the March 12 West Coast premiere of Alfonso Cuaron’s Spanish-language “Y tu mama tambien.”
But buzz for the Mexican B.O. hit attracted a heavyweight crowd for a foreign-language pic at L.A.’s Regent Theater.
So too did the Argyle Hotel after-party, hosted by Christina Ricci, Sidney Pollack and Gwyneth Paltrow, with music supervisor (and KCRW DJ) Liza Richardson spinning salsa tunes.
“It’s a movie about identity,” Cuaron said. “The teen boys are finding their identity as men, Luisa is finding her identity as an independent woman and Mexico is seeking its identity as an adult nation. It’s one of my two favorite films, along with ‘A Little Princess.’ ”
Attendees included co-scripter Carlos Cuaron, IFC execs Jonathan Sehring and Bob Berney, producer Mark Johnson and musician Danny Elfman, stars Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal, plus guests Salma Hayek, Edward Norton, Diane Lane, Summer Phoenix, Julie Delpy, Saffron Burrows, Guillermo del Toro and Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu.
