Art dealer Larry Gagosian hosted a VIP screening of Wong Kar-wai’s latest martial arts movie, The Grandmaster, at his Amagansett home. Guests included Southampton resident and designer Calvin Klein and Renee Zellweger, along with Georgina Chapman, Ingrid Sischy and Terry Semel.
Kar-wai’s kung fu film is based on the life story of Wing Chun grandmaster Ip Man, or Yip Kai-man, who taught Bruce Lee and is already memorialized in the highly rated 2008 film Ip Man, by Wilson Yip (check it out on Netflix). Does Gagosian’s screening mean The Grandmaster is high art, or is it just a good time, like we used to enjoy on Saturdays and Sundays as kids?
Ask Renee or Calvin next time you see them around town.
