CITY ISLAND: WEST BANK CAFE, THE PENULTIMATE DAY.
Raymond with producers Greg and Lauren.
The happiness is palpable. Not because the film is nearly in the can, but because everyone seems acutely aware at how little time there is left to be friends. This sense is something akin to the end of a school year when the petty feuds are laid to one side and the smiles begin to creep up at the corners of your mouth... Sentimental? Me? Never!
I guess all this is heightened by the fact we are shooting a particularly 'feel-good' scene (when the punters of the West Bank Cafe all applause Vincent's successful audition) It all lends to the mood of good-will and the sudden rush to exchange numbers with those you may want to see again someday.
Sides from today: A scene with Emily Mortimer and Andy Garcia.
