His daughter Sofia might be the stylish member of the clan, but Francis Ford Coppola tried his hand at the fashion circuit on Sunday night at a Gucci-sponsored screening of his latest flick, “Tetro,” at The Directors Guild Theater.
The film stars Vincent Gallo and newcomer Alden Ehrenreich as brothers who are coming to terms with the dark legacy of their Italian-Argentine family. At the screening after party, held at nearby Nobu Fifty Seven, Coppola explained why he found the story of two brothers so compelling. “Family is the way we learn to love, and therefore family is the way we learn to have our feelings really hurt,” he said. “But beyond that, brother is a metaphor for all people. Because, in the end, we’re all related to Genghis Khan.”
