A ‘Dream’ come true at premiere

Woody Allen film bows in New York

At Tuesday’s Gotham premiere party for “Cassandra’s Dream,” helmer Woody Allen stood next to the buffet table at the Tribeca Grand Hotel discussing the roles Greek literature and London play in his latest pic.

“I’ve always been a fan of Greek literature and Greek plays,” said Allen, whose film imitates a classical tragedy in structure with lower-class English characters. “In order to be susceptible to the proposition that’s put before these two guys, they can’t be too financially secure.”

Allen was enthusiastic about filming “Cassandra’s Dream” in London. “It’s much like New York; it was very pleasant. It’s also cool in the summer, and there are gray skies, which are very good for photography.”

The film’s star, Colin Farrell, spent the evening mixing with the rest of the celeb-heavy guest list, including Joe Pantoliano, Julian Schnabel and Sam Rockwell.
