'Company' crowd celebrates pic bow at Elaine's
NEW YORK — Gotham’s most graceful gathered Tuesday evening for Robert Altman‘s terpsichorean exploration “The Company.”Night was a big one for star and former dancer Neve Campbell, who also shares screenplay and producer credits. While none of the film’s scenes were specifically drawn from her personal experience, the thesp said, “We’ve all had to deal with pressure, get suddenly thrown onstage and deal with choreographers.” Campbell, shod in four-inch stiletto heels for the evening, was asked to compare her current choice of footwear to toe shoes. “Less painful, but still painful,” she admitted. Post pic, guests wended their way to literary watering hole Elaine’s and completely overran the place, upending regulars holding court. Richard Gere and Carey Lowell, Bob Balaban, Tim Robbins and Clive Owen were among those joining Sony Classics’ Tom Bernard and Michael Barker and Killer Films’ Christine Vachon at preem.
