NEW YORK — Eerie, unexpected, slightly sapphic — Vera Wang’sfirst effort in filmmaking is not aimed at traditionalists, and thatseems to be the point.
Created by Gordon Von Steiner, the 93-second short features fourlithesome models at times entwined or within reach of each other on theOlmsted-designed grounds and in vacuous rooms at La Selva, an ItalianRenaissance estate in Oyster Bay, Long Island. There is no trace ofclinking Champagne flutes, jittery brides-to-be or adoring guests, andSon Lux’s “Easy” is the song of choice. Viewers will find a burningrose, a quartet of brides strewn with black rose petals and a shadowydance, among other unexplained dalliances.
