With rain in the forecast all weekend, wash away those summer blues and head to the movies to check out Disorder, which opens in select theaters today, August 12.

Disorder tells the story of Vincent (Matthias Schoenaerts), an ex-soldier with PTSD who is hired to protect the wife (Diane Kruger) and young son of a wealthy Lebanese businessmessman at their luxurious villa on the French Riviera. Wrought with perpetual flashbacks of his time serving in Afghanistan, the unstable Vincent must determine which dangers to the family are real, and which are the product of his PTSD-fueled paranoia, if he is to keep them safe. The film is written and directed by Alice Winocour, and it premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

Earlier this week, The Cinema Society & Chopard, with Line 39 and Qui, hosted a screening of Disorder. The film was shown at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema; and the after-party was help at Jimmy at the James Hotel. Guests drank Qui tequila cocktails, appropriately named Riviera Intrigue and Nightwatch, in keeping with the theme of the film. The cool Tuesday rooftop vibes offered views of both the Freedom Tower and the Empire State Building. Though intriguing, an outdoor swimming pool was decidedly off-limits to the well-heeled guests. Kruger stunned in Alexander McQueen and Chopard jewelry.

Attendees included Kruger and Winocour, as well as Prabal Gurung, Georgina Chapman, Paul Haggis, Taryn Manning, Terry George, Laura Michelle Kelly, Brandon Victor Dixon (taking over Leslie Odom Jr’s role as Aaron Burr in Hamilton), Sally Singer, Ryan Cooper, Fern Mallis, Rose Gilroy, Heidi Mount, Dale Moss, Daniel Benedict, Antoine Verglas, and Cinema Society Founder Andrew Saffir.
