Of her movie, the legendary pop singer who is circling the globe for her Sticky & Sweet tour shared, "I'm so happy with the finished product. Writing it was actually my favorite part because it is so different from everything I do and deep down inside I'm really a writer."
Aside from Madonna, the event was marked with the attendance of many top Hollywood A-listers. America Ferrera, Chace Crawford, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba, Erika Christensen, Alan Cumming, Brooke Shields, Juliette Lewis, Vanessa Williams, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber are only a few of the celebrity guests drawn in by the event.
Intended to be a short film, "Wisdom" is a comedic intertwined drama resolving around three distinctive characters, "a man who spanks for money, a chemist and a pole dancer". The film starred by Eugene Hutz, Holly Weston and Vicky McClure is expected to be released in limited theaters on October 17.
