Seeing Stars: Movie Premieres



The US premiere of Filmmaker Maria Matteoli's feature-length film "The Wine of Summer”. 

Written, directed and produced by Maria Matteoli, "The Wine of Summer” stars Academy Award-Winner Marcia Gay HardenEthan Peck (the grandson of Gregory Peck), Elsa Pataky ( Fast & Furious), Kelsey Asbille (Disney’s “Teen Wolf”), Mimi Gianopulos (daughter of Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos - starred in What To Expect When You’re Expecting), Sonia Braga and Bob E. Wells.

The Wine of Summer is a story of love -- both lost and found -- of timeless beauty and the brightness of youth. In the golden summer of Spain, five central characters find their fates intertwined.

James (Ethan Peck) quits his law career in pursuit of his childhood dream of becoming an actor. While studying acting under the tutelage of Shelley (Marcia Gay Harden), he becomes engrossed in Carlo Lucchesi's play, Tinto de Verano, which is set in Spain. When James' girlfriend leaves him, he spontaneously flies to Spain, where he encounters the misanthropic playwright Lucchesi at a bookstore in Barcelona. Lucchesi is in a relationship with a much younger woman, Veronica (Elsa Pataky), but still nurtures an old love for his long lost muse, Eliza (Sonia Braga), a novelist, who happens to be visiting her son in Barcelona. In the golden backdrop of Spain, these characters find their fates intertwined.
