Actor Pierce Brosnan and his 8-year-old son Paris Beckett were spotted heading into the Taverna Tony restaurant in Malibu, Calif. on Saturday (October 3). It looks like papa Pierce just picked up his son from a soccer game. Mom Keely Shaye Smith and big brother Dylan Thomas, 12, did not accompany the father-son duo.

Brosnan costars with Susan Sarandon in the upcoming movie The Greatest. The drama depicts a family's struggle to heal over the loss of their son. The tear-jerker was first screened at the Sundance Film Festival this past January.

The Greatest is set to open the 17th Annual Hamptons International Film Festival on Thursday (October 8).

Sarandon answers Brosnan's call

If you want Susan Sarandon to star in your movie, shoot it near her house, make sure the schedule isn't grueling and have Pierce Brosnan call her himself to ask.

The Oscar winner took a role in writer-director Shana Feste's "The Greatest" for the aforementioned reasons, she said at a Bon Appetit/Supper Club dinner following the flick's premiere at Sundance.

"I was debating doing the movie, but it was near my house, it wasn't that long a shoot, and [Feste] was so passionate about it," Sarandon told us. "I said we'd have to get a great male lead, and I thought Pierce was a good suggestion. So one day I get a voice-mail, and it was Pierce. He said 'This is Pierce Brosnan. "The Greatest." Why not?' And I was in."

The film focuses on a family (Sarandon and Brosnan are the parents) trying to cope with the loss of a child after a car accident.

"It was serious subject matter," Sarandon acknowledged. "Luckily, there are a lot of moments where people are allowed to laugh, so I think that stops it from being unbearable and melodramatic. It's hard for me, because tonight was the first time I saw it." And?

"Well, when you see any film for the first time, you first notice a lot of your scenes are missing and things are different in places, and it's very disorienting. The performances are all very strong, but I'm not in a position to objectively critique," Sarandon said.

"But I think I look horrible. I don't even like watching myself when I'm supposed to be glamorous, but watching yourself when you're blubbering all the time and bitching at people is worse. But my son told me I did a good job, so I trust him."

Even with all that weeping, Sarandon found a way to keep the mood on the set light. "We had a fun group of people there, and I have to stay loose when I work, so I tend to aggressively try to have a good time. On 'Lorenzo's Oil' and 'Dead Man Walking,' I never laughed so hard. You have to laugh more on a movie that's so serious."

Speaking of serious, Sarandon told us about her own worst car accident: "A long time ago in New Jersey, I was driving and I was hit on the driver's side, and the car went up on its side. I wasn't wearing a seat belt and I was in some huge car. I had a concussion, but I wasn't badly injured. My mother said, 'Thank God you were wearing new underwear.'"

"The greatest destined for Greatness

Susan Sarandon and Pierce Brosnan's The Greatest screened twice over the weekend at Sundance, and however overcooked the dead-son weepie feels, we can't argue with multiple standing ovations.

Brosnan in particular, who plays the patriarch of a family devastated by the death of their teenage son in an automobile accident, was singled out for demonstration of audience affection, prompting those at Saturday morning's screening from their seats for an ovation that lasted maybe 15 seconds but felt like forever in the usually subdued early-morning setting. Sarandon and director Shana Feste felt the love as well, along with young co-stars Carey Mulligan, Johnny Simmons and Zoe Kravitz. We've been to a lot of public screenings over the years and seen and heard a lot of pushover audiences go nuts for film. This was one of those once- or twice-a-fest scenes where you could almost smell 600 people at the Racquet Club losing their shit. People love this movie.

But why? Brosnan (who also produced) is out of his depths as Allen Brewer, a mathematics professor maintaining his stiff upper lip while wife Grace (Sarandon) melts down completely following their son Bennett's fatal car wreck. Allen's determination to hold the family together is meant to reinforce his stone wall blocking grief, but in the presence of the more genuinely whacked Grace — who wakes up crying and spends months, in hopes of some closure, reading to the comatose driver who struck her son's car — it never feels like more than a high-stakes mourn-off punctuated by convenient expository fights, loving plunges into the ocean, etc.

It was a mindfuck for Sarandon, and the emotional imbalance shows in the parts of her performance not drugged within an inch of their life by Feste's potent script bromides.

"I have to admit that when I read it, it was so eccentric and there were a lot of things I didn't realize — until we actually started doing it —how difficult it was," she told the audience after the screening. "That was my bad. There are some actors who say they can never remember their real names when they're filming. I can never remember my character's name. When I go home to my kids, I completely leave it behind. I found on the days when we did some of the very, very emotional scenes that you have to hold on to for eight or 10 hours, my body chemistry actually changed. I was really shocked about how I smelled and the person I became. It was really horrible. That was the first time I realized that kind of impact when you imagine those things; your body can't tell the difference between what's imaginary and what's real."

So how did Sarandon and the others get through the 25-day shoot? "The cast was really, really fun and loving," she said. "It was a very happy set; sometimes I think we overcompensated. I think the two funniest sets I've ever been on were Dead Man Walking and Lorenzo's Oil. Explain that."

Yet there are two reasons to see The Greatest: Mulligan and Simmons, playing Bennett's pregnant girlfriend and messed-up little brother respectively, both extraordinary and nothing short of sincere in navigating the dynamics of their own grief. We'll get to this later today (and later this week in a little more depth), but Mulligan, whose Greatest and An Education performances had hype-within-the-hype momentum accompanying them before the festival even started, is an insanely vivid talent whose relationship with Allen Brewer is the only thing that salvages Brosnan's own performance; her retelling to him of meeting Bennett on their last day of school is devastating. At 23, and with little on her resume besides 2005's Pride and Prejudice and some British TV, she already improves everyone around her. Simmons, meanwhile, was also one of the only redeeming things about The Spirit, portraying the hero as a lovesick young man. His responsibility to parse his love/hate relationship with his mythologized brother refines that heartbreak here

Sundance filmfestival

Brosnan,Sarandon ,Rock,...

http://festival.sundance.org/2009/

Films featuring Chris Rock, Pierce Brosnan, Susan Sarandon, Paul Giamatti and Emily Watson are among those competing for top honors at January's Sundance Film Festival.

Rock appears in the documentary "Good Hair," director Jeff Stilson's examination of African-American hairstyles, which was among 64 films announced Wednesday in Sundance's four competitions for U.S. and world cinema.

Brosnan and Sarandon star in director Shana Feste's "The Greatest," about a couple coping with the loss of their teenage son, while Giamatti and Watson are among the cast of Sophie Barthes' "Cold Souls," centering on an actor in an existential crisis.

The festival that showcases independent film runs Jan. 15-25 in Park City, Utah.

Others films among the 16 in the U.S. drama category include the romance "Brief Interviews With Hideous Men," the writing-directing debut of "The Office" co-star John Krasinski. He also appears in the film along with Timothy Hutton, Julianne Nicholson and "Office" colleague Rashida Jones.

The overall Sundance lineup is hard to categorize but will be heavy on "romance and activism," said festival director Geoffrey Gilmore.

"The issue about romance is it feels like a new generation taking the idea of love stories and romantic melodrama into their own direction," Gilmore said.

The U.S. and world documentary competitions are loaded with films examining social and environmental issues, including the ocean-wildlife studies "The Cove" and "The End of the Line," the oil chronicle "Crude," the top-soil tale "Dirt: The Movie" and the financial expose "Let's Make Money."

Also in the Sundance dramatic lineup: "The Dream of the Romans," with Jeff Daniels and Lauren Graham in a story about the reclusive author of an influential spiritual book; "An Education," an adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel starring Peter Sarsgaard, Alfred Molina and Emma Thompson; "Five Minutes of Heaven," an Irish political drama with Liam Neeson; and "Taking Chance," a military homefront saga with Kevin Bacon.

The documentary categories also include "When You're Strange," a chronicle of Jim Morrison and the Doors; "Thriller in Manila," examining the final boxing match between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier; and "William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe," a portrait of the civil-rights lawyer directed by his daughters, Sarah and Emily Kunstler.

The overall Sundance lineup presents 118 feature-length films, which were chosen from 3,661 submissions. Films in the star-studded premieres section and other categories will be announced Thursday.
