Movie Info

Let Julianne Moore, Isaac Mizrahi, Michael Musto and other famous (and infamous) faces take you on a fantastic voyage to New York City's legendary Florent diner. For 23 years, the all-night eatery in the city's Meat Packing District was prime stomping ground for a surprising mix of A-list celebrities, tourists, families and club kids. This wildly entertaining documentary chronicles the history and final days of this outrageous icon!--(C) Official Site

The interviews and vintage clips are a vivid record of an extraordinary era in the city's history.

When Julianne Moore enthuses about the fact that kids got crayons with their meals, you have to wonder if a short film might have suited this story better.

It is a touching, elegiac tale of the rise (and some would say fall) of a colorful New York neighborhood under the relentless march of gentrification.

A briskly paced, unself-consciously edited celebration that matches the giddy vibe of its namesake.

A unique, cherished New York restaurant and its equally singular owner are celebrated in this affectionate documentary.

David Sigal's documentary may not quite manage to canonize the diner, at least not to flyover country, but it sure makes it sound like a good meal and a great time.
