Crazy About Tiffany's in Moscow, Too

Almost no one can withstand the allure of Tiffany's jewelry.

"Crazy About Tiffany's," a new documentary film about the famous New York jewelry and luxury goods store, will premier this Thursday at the Center of Documentary Cinema.

Director Matthew Miele shares the dazzling history of Tiffany & Co. which from its opening has drawn clients both glitzy and serious. Over the years Abraham Lincoln, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Marilyn Monroe, and Steve Jobs — to name a few — have been frequent shoppers. The film shows how the company grew from a small store in New York to become a world-wide phenomenon.

Some well-known faces make appearances in the documentary, including director Baz Luhrmann ("The Great Gatsby," "Moulin Rouge!") and actress Jessica Biel ("The Illusionist," "Valentine's Day"). Author Fran Lebowitz also appear in the film along with journalist and 6-time Emmy winner Katie Couric.

Whether you're crazy about Tiffany's or you know only a little about the company, the documentary promises a sparkling treat for a warm night in Moscow.

Center of Documentary Cinema, 2 Zubovsky Bulvar, Bldg. 7. Metro Park Kultury. cdkino.ru. Thurs. June 2 at 1, 5, and 7p.m. In English with Russian subtitles.
