Amfar's 2009 'Cinema Against AIDS' gala, set at the Hotel du Cap in Antibes was packed with more than enough star power.  Although the du Cap is a new venue for the event, things seemed to run smoothly as the guests ate, drank, and bid on Chanel Segways all for a good cause.  We hear that this year's party raised approximately 1.6 million dollars, though this sum pales in comparison to last year's reported 7 million dollars raised for Amfar.   So just who was there?  Why, everyone of course...

While the film's mixed reviews were nothing short of extraordinary, on the contrary the crowd's response to the film was a pleasant one. It could have been the fact that it was my first premier and I was not used to sitting in an tuxedo for two hours while watching a film on 1969's Woodstock, but it plainly did not hold my...
