Last night's Cinema Society and DeLeón Tequila screening of The Weinstein Company's Killing Them Softly was a joyful reunion—the gangster flick features a cast of longtime friends and colleagues, all of whom are veterans of the genre. "We've worked together a lot over the last 15 years," said Vincent Curatola of his costars James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, and Max Casella. "Been to a lot of weddings and a lot of funerals." The gang decided to get together one last time for a different kind of mob flick. "It's a great gangster movie, but it's also funny. The humor made the whole thing more interesting to me," Gandolfini told Style.com. Working with Brad Pitt was also a draw. "He's a character actor—some people you're working with their personality. But Brad is a true talent; with him you're working with that character." After such a long run as Tony Soprano, Gandolfini said that this would be his last gangster. "Well, until I need more money."
Guests moved downtown to No. 8 for the after-party, where Rose Byrne, Rachel Roy, and Francisco Costa all tried to catch a moment with Brad Pitt. Costa swooned, "We were on the same flight from L.A. to Paris a few months ago, and when I saw him tonight he remembered me!"
