HBO Films offered guests a taste of la dolce vita at Monday’s preem of “My House in Umbria.”
Among those who gathered to enjoy the Italian feast at the Four Seasons were star Maggie Smith, HBO’s Richard Plepler, pic’s exec producer Frank Doelger and scribe Hugh Whitmore, plus moppet co-star Emmy Clarke.

“I can’t think of anything more boring than repeating a performance,” Cooper said.
Other guests included Dominick Dunne, Blair Brown, Maggie Renzi, John Sayles and Chris Whittle.
