The evening began with a pre-screening cocktail event at the Hyatt Hotel (ONYX Room). Guests then gathered at the SVA Theatre for a VIP screening of “This Beautiful Fantastic”. Simon Aboud is the film’s writer and director. Other guests included his wife Mary and his father in law, Paul McCartney.
“This Beautiful Fantastic” is a wonderful film. “This Beautiful Fantastic” follows Bella Brown (Jessica Brown Findlay) who works in a library and dreams of writing children’s books. She lives next door to an old widower, Alfie Stephenson (Tom Wilkinson). The film starts off with the pair at odds but they begin to form a friendship while working together on a garden.
