The crowd gathered around Amy Adams like kindergarten children waiting for the teacher to tell a story. Leading the pack, none other than the grande dame of rock, Patti Smith. Smith smiled at Adams like an anxious girl on her first day of school, excited to congratulate the actress on her new movie Arrival.

What would you do if you could see your whole life before it happened? This is the question posed to Amy Adams’ character Louise in the new film by Academy Award winner Spike Jonez, who also attended. Adams must figure out how to communicate with alien life forms who have  planted themselves at twelve major locations around the globe. The faith of humanity is in her hands as she teams up with the absent Jeremy Renner‘s character, physicist Ian Donnelly to discover the aliens purpose on Earth.

After the screening, guests made their way to Metrograph’s second floor bar, in the company of the lady of the hour. Petite and pretty, the strawberry blonde was the center of attention as the photographers performed their usual click and flash show.

Maneuvering through the crowd of tower high models was no easy feat. Spotted, one Garrett Neff. Are those Calvin Klein jeans, Mr. Geff? And Trevor Noah looked quintessentially New York in all black. (Dear New Yorkers, some color in your wardrobe won’t kill you.)

Other notable guests included Jennifer Creel, Debbie Bancroft, Johannes Huebl, Ariana Rockefeller, Sienna Miller, Bennett Miller, Ben Foster andLaura Prepon, Patti Smith, Michael Stipe, Christina Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend, Trevor Noah, Paul Haggis, John Cameron Mitchell, Alex Gibney, James Schamus, Amir Arison, Tom Payne, Mike Doyle, Louisa Krause, Nico Tortorella, Michael Kenneth Williams, Simon McBurney, Erin Richards, Cory Michael Smith, and Alison Sudol.
