LONDON — A collection of well-heeled London socialites including Jade Jagger rocked Notting Hill’s Electric cinema Oct. 7 for a charity screening of Claude Sautet’s slow-boiling Gallic drama “Un coeur en hiver” (1992), which Jeremy Irons introduced as the film that has most inspired him.

Irons took time to praise Sautet’s minimalist style — “the artist should be present throughout his work but never visible, like God in nature” — and the underplayed acting perf of Daniel Auteuil and Emmanuelle Beart — “good acting is like knicker elastic; I don’t want to see it, I want to feel it.”

Event was hosted by luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent and Katrina Pavlos, founder of the InHouse celebrity screening series, with all proceeds going to charity FilmAid.
