Screening of ‘Love… Reconsidered,’ A Hamptons-Based Romantic Comedy

authorStaff Writer on Sep 19, 2023

The Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center will host a premiere of the film “Love… Reconsidered,” a witty and charming romantic comedy starring Sophie von Haselberg, Judy Gold, Marisa Ryan, Elaine Bromka, Luke Gulbranson and Colton Haynes, on Saturday, September 30, at 7 p.m. in the Mollie Parnis Auditorium.

Set between New York City and Southampton, “Love… Reconsidered” is based on the true (love) life story of Arielle Haller-Silverstone, who wrote the screenplay loosely inspired by her own experiences when she lost her job during the COVID-19 pandemic and moved to the Hamptons.

Directed by Carol Ray Hartsell, “Love… Reconsidered” marks the filmmaker’s feature debut as a director, after a number of TV credits including digital producer at “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” Von Haselberg, the daughter of actress Bette Midler, in turn, is coming off an acclaimed performance in Amanda Kramer’s surreal festival hit “Give Me Pity!”

“We’re beyond excited to premiere our special Hamptons-centric film, ‘Love... Reconsidered’ with the WHBPAC,” said Haller-Silverstone, who is the co-owner of Le Closet, a curated consignment store, with locations in Southampton and New York City. “We love the incredible community of Westhampton Beach, and we can’t wait to share this little indie darling with such a special audience.”

The special screening will also include an engaging panel discussion with the filmmakers moderated by Kate Schumacher and Carinn Jade of the podcast “Pop Fiction Women,” where they delve deep into the complicated lives of the film’s characters, along with the filmmaking process that brought this movie to the big screen.

Tickets are $16 at whbpac.org, 631-288-1500 or at the box office.

The Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center is at 76 Main Street, Westhampton Beach.
