As the 59th edition of the New York Film Festival continues through October 10th, we were thrilled to welcome audiences to our Centerpiece selection, Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog, last Friday evening. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, and Kodi Smit-McPhee, Campion’s screen-adaptation of Thomas Savage’s novel is an impeccably acted and beautifully shot film that enraptured our New York audiences. In addition to screening in each of the festival’s Lincoln Center venues, The Power of the Dog‘s presence was also felt via a red carpet, a filmmaker & cast introduction and Q&A, and an afterparty at Tavern on the Green, presented by Campari.
Scroll through our photo gallery above to see select highlights from the evening, and watch/listen to our exclusive conversation with Campion, Cumberbatch, Dunst, Smit-McPhee, and cinematographer Ari Wegner.
Mark your calendars: The Power of the Dog will open in theaters on November 17th and will premiere on Netflix beginning December 1st.
