The third edition of the Riviera Maya Film Festival 2014 got under way last night in Cancun with an opening gala screening of the movie Night Moves. The film directed by Kelly Reichardt made its festival debut on opening night with a guest appearance by Peter Sarsgaard who stars in the film. The actor got presented on stage with a special gift by the event organizers before the movie screened thanking him for his attendance. Sarsgaard thanked the Film Festival and gave a great speech on the power and need of change in regards to environmental issues around the globe which is the main theme of the movie that premiered.
Another special guest of the evening was the actors’ wife, the Oscar nominated Maggie Gyllenhaal who looked even more stunning in person than she does in films. It’s no surprise though as her family is blessed with some decent genes we would say! Her brother Jake is admired by his stunning looks by men and women alike as well!
After the opening ceremony the film Night Moves was shown to the packed theater which ended with applause once the lights came up. The movie itself starts off slow but builds up in intensity and leaves the audience captivated by the acting performances of Sarsgaard, Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning. Following the screening at the Teatro De Cancun in the Hotel Zone, we were treated to a nice cocktail reception at the trendy Me Cancun Hotel a few kilometers down the road.
