Nice Day for a White Wedding

"It's fun to show a film here," first-time filmmaker Leslye Headland told the audience last night at the Landmark Sunshine Theatre screening of her debut movie Bachelorette. "I used to come here during my NYU days. I came to see Fear and Loathing and I remember I did coke in the bathroom and threw up everywhere," she said. "Actually, I wrote this film while I was living on a couch and working on a blow job monologue."

A memorable introduction, to be sure, and one that could've been a scene from Headland's movie, which stars Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, and Lizzy Caplan as longtime best friends and bridesmaids. No, this flick is nothing like the Kristen Wiig knee-slapper from last year: "It's much, much darker," warned Caplan. "It feels more like a dark, upsetting play."

Make no mistake, though, the actresses had plenty of fun in the process. "When we had to act drunk, we would all stand on the spot and spin; Kirsten taught us how to do that," Fisher reported. According to Dunst, "That was something Allison Janney taught me a while back. You just sort of spin around a lot, feel dizzy so you can't walk right, and you look pretty out of it." At the film's after-party, which was held at the retired strip joint Westway, the girls didn't have to fake it, treating themselves to a real glass of bubbly or two. "We actually ate dinner at the strip club after we filmed the scene in the movie," Dunst reminisced. "It was a little awkward, I admit, but nice of them to treat us."
