Screening of Stella's Last Weekend, & Interview of Polly Draper
Monday November 5 at 6:00 PM

In an era where female directors are having their overdue moment, filmmaker & actress Polly Draper has been leading the charge for decades. She wrote, directed and stars in her next film, STELLA'S LAST WEEKEND, (you can view the trailer here) hitting theaters soon.

Known to millions as the Emmy-nominated star of 80s tv hit THIRTYSOMETHING, Draper became an instant sensation with the creation of THE NAKED BROTHERS BAND for which she wrote, directed, starred in and produced for Nickelodeon, starring her two young kids at the time, Nat Wolff & Alex Wolff. Naked Brothers was a family affair with her husband serving as co-ep and music advisor, launching one of the most successful series ever on Nickelodeon. New York Times articles on the show here: A TV Family Bound by Blood and a Band & Famous for Playing Rock Stars.

After the success of Naked Brothers, Draper stepped out of the limelight for a while to raise her kids, who are now successful actors in their own right, continuing to work a bit off-Broadway, writing scripts, and appearing in films such as Obvious Child and Side Effects.

She is back in full effect as the writer/director & star of STELLA'S LAST WEEKEND, also starring her real-life sons, Nat Wolff & Alex Wolff.

The film is a sweet family story about brothers Jack (Nat) and Oliver (Wolff) who reunite at their childhood home to put their beloved dog, Stella, to sleep. While their unconventional mother (Draper) plans an extravagant party in celebration of Stella's life, Jack and Oliver are blindsided when they discover they are both in love with the same girl.

Fun fact is the Wolff/Draper family adopted the dog in the film, prior to start of production.

The event will include a screening of the the film Stella's Last Weekend, followed by an in person interview of Polly Draper.
