I recently went to the Toronto premiere (and sat with Barry Diller, Diane von Furstenberg, Alex von Furstenberg, Ali Kay and Barbara Bach) of my dearest, nearest friends Tatiana von Furstenberg and Francesco Gregorini's writing and directing debut, Tanner Hall. And whether or not they are my besties doesn't matter. The film, about four girls in boarding school, is ah-mazing. Co-starring a hilariously restrained Amy Sedaris and Chris Kattan as well as hunky Tom Everett Scott and Tara Subkoff, it's the four new faces -- Rooney Mara, Georgia King, Brie Larson and Amy Ferguson -- who make the movie so riveting. Naturally, I am thrilled to report that the hunky young boy character (played by Ryan Schira) is named Peter, after yours truly. You must watch the trailer and get tickets when it screens at the Hamptons International Film Festival on October 9th. Tanner Hall is sexy, sad, stylish, funny and witty. "I wanted to call the film something pretentious," jokes Tatiana. "Like A Bruised Pear" or "A Still Life, Interrupted." Francesco hated both those titles and came up with the name Tanner Hall."
