Sony Classics hosted an elegant press luncheon today (12:30 to 2 pm) for Bennett Miller‘s well-received Foxcatcher at the Carlton Beach restaurant. It got started a little late and a lot of us had to leave around 1:30 pm for the Salle Debussy Lost River screening so there wasn’t much time to really chat with the principals. I spoke with Bennett a little bit; ditto producer Jon Kilik. I didn’t even say hi to costars Steve Carell and Channing Tatum. Thanks to SPC’s Tom Bernard and Michael Barker and their p.r. reps. I wish I could have hung around longer.

During today’s Foxcatcher press luncheon at Carlton beach (l. to r.): Deadline‘s Pete Hammond, Daily Mail‘s Baz Bamigboye (standing), director Bennett Miller, Hollywood Reporter critic Todd McCarthy.
