The 2011 Tribeca Film Festival just added a little more sex and rock and roll and maybe drugs… we haven’t seen the flicks yet so we can’t confirm that bit. (But maybe!) Just added to the New York festival lineup are Talihina Sky: The Story of The Kings of Leon and a drama called Detachment.
Well, clearly the rock and roll as promised above will come from the work-in-progress screening of Stephen C. Mitchell’s Kings of Leon documentary, but the sex is courtesy of Christina Hendricks’ sheer presence in Detachment. In reality, Tony Kaye’s film follows “the intertwining lives of several high school teachers, administrators and students” and also stars Adrien Brody and is part of the Spotlight section at Tribeca. It will be interesting to see what Hendricks does outside of her sexpot role on Mad Men; it seems like this is just the first of many starring roles that she’ll take on, so let’s hope it bodes well for the future.
