MANHATTAN — Actress Michelle Williams showed off her pixie hairdo in SoHo Monday night for The Cinema Society screening of her new film "Meek's Cutoff."
The film, which looks like a live-action version of "The Oregon Trail," also features Paul Dano, of "Little Miss Sunshine" fame, "Bored to Death's" Zoe Kazan and Neal Huff, who played the evil political advisor to Tommy Carcetti on HBO's "The Wire."
They were joined by a collection of entertainers including "Lost in Translation" director Sofia Coppola and songstress Sheryl Crow.
"Meek's Cutoff" director Kelly Reichardt, who collaborated with Williams on the acclaimed 2008 flick, "Wendy and Lucy," also attended the SoHo screening at Jimmy At The James Hotel on Grand Street.
In Midtown, eminent rocker Courtney Love turned out for the 2011 New Films/New Directors screening of "Hit So Hard," a new documentary about her former "Hole" bandmate Patty Schemel.
Schemel, the band's openly gay female drummer, and "Hole" co-founder Eric Erlandson were also on hand for the Museum of Mordern Art event.
