Pushing his ‘Luck’

Pic's thesps take in unspooling at Lincoln Center

WHAT: Opening night for the 43rd New York Film Festival, featuring an unspooling of George Clooney‘s “Good Night, and Good Luck”

WHO: Pic’s David Strathairn, Patricia Clarkson, Alex Borstein and Frank Langella, among others; co-writer Grant Heslov; plus Darren Aronofsky, Rachel Weisz, “The Squid and the Whale” helmer Noah Baumbach, Teri Hatcher and Edie Falco

WHERE: Lincoln Center and, later, Tavern on the Green

CURIOUS GEORGE: “(This film) deals with a period of time, but also questions that we always have: The importance of information and the importance of questioning authority,” Clooney said. “Any government unchecked corrupts, and I think it’s important to talk about that, without politicizing it, because we need to find some common ground.”

TEEMING TAVERN: Guests hoping to make their way to the Tavern’s ultra-cramped bar or buffet as the party got under way might’ve had Murrow’s signature signoff running through their head — good luck, indeed.
