I replaced our previous ‘The Help’ screencaptures for better quality ones. We also skipped a scene on the previous batch, so was the perfect reason to redo-it. Enjoy!

After discussing a film idea for quite some time, actor Alec Baldwin and writer/director James Toback decided to go to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and document their search for investors. During their time at Cannes, Baldwin and Toback interviewed many high-profile figures in the film industry.
In an interview to HBO, director James Toback told about how they approach the list appearing on the documentary:
I knew all the directors I approached. I was pretty friendly with a few of them. Alec wanted those particular directors. Ryan Gosling was his idea. I’ve known Jessica Chastain for several years, and she was my idea. I hadn’t thought about Diane Kruger before, but then we ran into her in the lobby of the Carlton Hotel [in Cannes, France].
Seduced and Abandoned premiered in the Special Screenings section of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival on May 20, 2013. A week prior to its premiere at the festival, the North American rights to the film were acquired by HBO Films. It later aired on HBO on October 28, 2013 and was given a cinematic release in the United Kingdom on November 8, 2013.
You can find in our gallery screencaptures and posters of the documentary, and the trailer plus a compilation of Jessica’s appearances on our video archive.
