Mira Sorvino, Stockard Channing, Timothy Hutton and Dana Delaney star in the upcoming flick “Multiple Sarcasms,” which was screened Monday by the Cinema Society at the Loews on 19th Street.
The movie — written, directed and produced by Brooks Branch — is the story of Gabriel Richmond (Hutton), an unconventional architect-turned-writer who pens a play about his life.
“I have always contemplated how difficult it must be for writers because they want to write what they know, but they also don’t want to hurt anyone,” said Laila Robins, who plays a “little pit stop on Gabriel’s life” on screen.
Any film about a man is also usually about the women in his life. “I have such wonderful actresses in the movie, and my effort was mostly about not letting their beauty distract their characters,” said first time writer-director Branch. “I had to push the costume designers to be down to earth.”
