Nick Jonas and David Arquette hit the red carpet in Lower Manhattan on Thursday night for the second day of the Tribeca Festival.
The stars of The Good Half walked the red carpet for the premiere at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center located at 199 Chambers St. on June 8.
The Good Half is a comedy/drama that follows an aloof writer, played by Jonas, who returns to his childhood home when his mother (Elisabeth Shue) passes away; however, in doing so he must cope with his dysfunctional family—a hyperactive sister (Brittany Snow), an awkward father (Matt Walsh), and a shady step-father (Arquette)—and learn to deal with confrontation. It’s the typical family trope with hilarious scenes displaying the difficulty of handling grief, as well as dealing with forgiveness and regret. It also highlights that despite life’s pain, you gotta laugh to heal.
Cast Arquette, Jonas, and Snow joined director Robert Schwartzman for the first showcase, much to the delight of hundreds of screaming fans.
The Tribeca Festival is running until June 18, with each day featuring film premieres, talks, and other events around the Big Apple.
