A special screening of Sony Pictures Classics’ “Aloft” hosted by The Cinema Society took place at the Tribeca Grand Hotel on May 18 in New York. Before the lights dimmed for the film to start, award-winning writer and director, Claudia Llosa took a moment to express her gratitude for the final release of the film that was five years a dream in the making. Starring Jennifer Connelly, Cillian Murphy, Mélanie Laurent, William Shimell, Zen McGrath and Winta McGrath, “Aloft” tells a moving story that travels between time and focuses on a flawed relationship between mother and son after a luckless accident. The screening followed with an after party in the garden at Ladurée Soho, where guests enjoyed Qui tequila cocktails that were named ‘Aloft Apertif’ and ‘Healing Exilir’ inspired by the film.

Notable attendees included Jennifer Connelly, Claudia Llosa, Paul Bettany, Darren Aronofsky, Cherry Jones, Mischa Barton, Chelsea Peretti, Peter Scolari, Tracy Shayne, Laura Michelle Kelly, Ryan Cooper, Alysia Reiner, Skylan Brooks, Nina Griscom, Ashley Haas, Tali Lennox, and Jay Fielden.

The screening was sponsored by Town & Country. View the trailer of “Aloft” here and make sure to catch the film in theatres starting on May 22.
