Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Dermot Mulroney, Catherine Keener and Ed Norton attended this evening’s premiere of Christopher Dillon Quinn‘s (and Tommy Walker‘s) God Grew Tired Of Us (Newmarket, 1.12 limited), the emotional hit of last January’s Sundance Film Festival. It happened at West Hollywood’s Pacific Design Center — pre-screening schmooze time, the film at 8 pm, and then a crowded after-party. Pitt executive produced; Kidman narrated, Mulroney and Keener co-produced.

God Grew Tired of Us tells the story of three young Sudanese guys — John, Daniel, and Panther — all of them refugees from their country’s ongoing, utterly devastating civil war, and members of a massive army known as the “lost boys of Sudan”. The film is about their escape to America to start new lives only to encounter profound longings for home and family, and no small measure of guilt.
