There’s another week left in the New York Film Festival—but we’re headed out of town! Last-gasp tumbleweeds like us aren’t going to be anywhere near Lincoln Center today. After our morning coffee (iced—we’re already waxing nostalgic for summer) at Golden Pear, we’ll be heading to the Hamptons International Film Festival, where today’s screenings include early Oscar front-runner Marion Cotillard in Rust and Bone (she plays an amputee who has a transformative epiphany while Katy Perry’s “Firework” plays—we kid you not), Helen Hunt’s comeback role as a sex worker employed by an iron lung-bound paralytic in The Sessions and closing night film Not Fade Away, directed by The Sopranos capo di tutti David Chase. Sure, they’ll be in theaters by December—but any excuse to head out to the Hamptons this close to Columbus Day is good enough for us.
