Wilde, Bateman, Crudup Shoot Movie at “Sons of Essex”
Here’s the scene today inside Sons of Essex, the new hot spot at 133 Essex Street. During the next two days, the restaurant has been taken over by “The Longest Week,” a film starring Olivia Wilde, Jason Bateman and Billy Crudup. According to IMDB, the movie centers around Conrad Valmont, an “affluent and aimless” young man who’s living “a life of leisure in his parent’s prestigious Manhattan Hotel.” In the span of one week,” the synopsis reads, “he finds himself evicted, disinherited, and… in love.” Rumor has it Bateman and Wilde have a dance scene this afternoon. Sons of Essex is closed today but will reopen for dinner tomorrow night.
