The Descendants premieres tonight at the NYFF!

Tonight’s 9pm screening of The Descendants at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City, will be the closing gala of New York Film Festival.

Matthew will be in attendance as he has been spotted in NYC, by a few fans on twitter and we believe he attended a meet and greet at the Circle in The Square Theatre School of which he is a proud alumni.

As press screening for The Descendants have already been held, a few reviewers are making note of Matthew’s performance in the film. DVD Talk had this to say in their review, “Matthew Lillard holds his own with a turn that is natural and believable in a way he’s seldom been.”

We are looking forward to this film, Matthew may only have a small role but in Alexander Payne’s previous works, even in the smallest roles can be the most pivotal.
