Danish helmer celebrates preem in New York

The Russian Tea Room overflowed with champagne at the Aug. 8 premiere party for Focus Features’ “One Day,” as the pic’s Anne Hathaway, Jim Sturgess and Patricia Clarkson mingled with guests.

“I’m over the moon! I can’t believe I am in the Russian Tea Room and in New York City,” said director Lone Scherfig. “I came here once 20 years ago, and I’ve always wanted to come back.”

The Dane also liked the positive feedback at the screening. “People laughed a lot at Anne’s jokes. They really landed on both feet.”
