The fantasy film tells the story of a traveling theatre troupe that makes a deal with the Devil, thus allowing their audiences to travel through a magical mirror and explore their imaginations. Heath Ledger passed away one-third of the way through the film's creation, forcing executives to cast Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrel to portray different transformation's of Ledger's character Tony.

    Guests of the screening and after-party at the Crosby Street Hotel included Lily Cole, Shailene Woodley, Olivia Palermo, Kevin Zegers, and Alexander Dexter-Jones.
