DEADLINE — Women In Film has announced honorees for this year’s Crystal + Lucy Awards, its annual fundraising dinner that supports the Los Angeles organization’s educational and philanthropic programs and its advocacy for gender parity in the industry.

At the June 13 gala at the Beverly Hilton, actor-director-producer Elizabeth Banks will receive The Crystal Award for Excellence in Film, Black-ish star Tracee Ellis will get The Lucy Award for Excellence in Television, actress Zoey Deutch will receive The Women In Film Face of the Future Award; and director Mira Nair will receive the The Dorothy Arzner Directors Award.

“Throughout the last five years, Women In Film has focused its efforts on research, raising awareness, and sustainable solutions for gender parity in media,” WIF president Cathy Schulman said. “The theme of this year’s Crystal + Lucy Awards gala is ‘Evolve,’ reflecting the advocacy work we’ve done, the pressing demand for systemic change, and the promise of an inclusive future.”

BROADLY — “Turn that off,” Zoey Deutch says pointing to the recording device on my iPhone. “This is the most boring shit in the world.” I laugh her comment off and keep the recorder running, somehow sensing that “boring” is the wrong word for what’s about to come. Zoey then launches into an impassioned recap of what she learned at the Amsterdam Tulip Museum, becoming visibly excited when she gets to the part about how the price of flowers related to the price of Manhattan when the Dutch bought it in the early 17th century. “One tulip bulb cost three times as much as what they bought New York for,” she says, leaning toward me with contagious enthusiasm. “That’s how much flowers meant to them, which is so crazy! We don’t think about flowers that way nowadays because it’s so easy to transport seeds and flowers and bulbs. Isn’t that crazy?” She looks at me expectantly, and then undercuts the whole thing. “Wait ’til you fact check that and you’re like ‘no, Zoey was like on crack.'”

Zoey is right about one thing: Manhattan was purchased for a collection of trinkets, beads, and buttons that likely were valued less than some tulip bulbs (tulips were having a moment). But she was wrong about something else: Zoey is filled with such ebullient charm and innate animation that absolutely nothing she says is “boring shit.”

Though many movie-goers first got to know her in the 2014 comedy Vampire Academy, Zoey is now in the middle of the type of year that people in the business call a breakout. So far this year, she’s been the cover star of magazines like Marie Claire and C, and sat front-row at fashion weeks from Paris to Milan. Just last month, the Dallas Film Festival gave her the Shining Star Award, a trophy presented to those “prepared to accept the mantle of leading the next generation of filmmakers.”

W — On Monday night, in a suite at The Pierre in New York, up-and-coming actress Zoey Deutch was getting ready for the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala. This year’s theme was “Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” — and Deutch wanted to be dressed appropriately. “I really wanted to stay on theme,” she said, admiring her dress. “That was the one thing I was really interested in.”

Her white, floor-length gown, a custom creation by the designer Tory Burch, is a nod to Kawakubo’s signatures: it has a sleek silhouette and oversized sleeves, but comes in a Burch-approved organza tulle. To complement the look, Deutch wore her hair in a low bun, and kept her makeup minimal, with just a flash of peachy, coral color across each eyelid and her luminous skin.

“Who needs to get married?” laughed the 22-year-old starlet. “I will have been to the Met Ball twice now! I could just get married in my pajamas and I wouldn’t care.”

The first time she attended the Met Gala, Deutch didn’t quite know what to expect. “I didn’t really know that many people last year so I was nervous, but then I walked in and ran into one of my best friends, Chloe Grace Moretz, like immediately,” she said. This time around, she’s fresh off the big debut of her latest film at The Tribeca Film Festival, Flower, with several other new projects in the works, including Rebel in the Rye and a new Netflix project with Glen Powell titled Set It Up. The chances are high that she will see more than a few familiar faces at this year’s fete. “I know more people now!”

As she talked, a crowd of people arrived to steam her dress once more and make all the last-minute adjustments. Meanwhile, her glam squad was finalizing Deutch’s accessories with Tory Burch’s team, looking through an edit of box clutches and various statement earrings. “I am still deciding about the accessories,” she said as tried Fred Leighton pearl earrings and then swapped back to the big, white circular earrings (by Tory Burch) she had been keen on earlier. As she slipped on black Dries van Noten heels, she said, “Aren’t they great? I picked the out yesterday at like 6 p.m.”

Here, she talks to W exclusively about how her final look came together, wearing Comme des Garçons at age 11, her obsession with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and more.

W — Seven seconds into our conversation, Zoey Deutch was apologizing. Last week, a full 24 hours before we are scheduled to talk, someone from her management team had asked to push back our interview by 30 minutes—nanoseconds in celebrity time, not to mention a full day’s notice. But Deutch, a very busy actress with a very busy schedule, was genuinely apologetic at the mere idea of inconveniencing me, a civilian reporter.

It was a minor exchange that spoke volumes about Deutch. Attentive and charming, the 22-year-old speaks at a pace that would make Lorelai Gilmore’s head spin, peppering the conversation with questions that made me feel as if I were catching up with an old childhood friend.

The daughter of actress Lea Thompson and director Howard Deutch (Pretty In Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful), Deutch quickly made a name for herself in the business with roles in Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!!, Before I Fall, and last year’s Why Him? This week, she debuted her latest film, Flower, at the Tribeca Film Festival, which became the first film of the festival to be bought by a major studio, when Orchard acquired the rights just days after the premiere.

In the film, Deutch plays 17-year old Erica Vandross, a free spirit with some unconventional extracurricular activities (read: using her sexuality to extort older men), or as Deutch described her character, “it’s about a young woman who is looking for love in all the wrong places.” It’s a truly tour de force performance by the young actress, particularly in scenes with co-star Kathryn Hahn, who plays Erica’s mother.

“Her relationship with her mother is extremely complex like all relationships with mothers are,” said Deutch. “It’s filled with a lot of love and a lot of need for closeness and distance and separation and confusion. It’s a boundary-less relationship. It was a fun movie to get to explore the psychology of the mother-daughter relationship… There’s a book called Reviving Ophelia which I read for this, and it talks a lot about the thinking style of young children where we have a hard time growing up enough to see our mothers as real people, and I think that’s a lot of what my character is dealing with.”

DEADLINE — The Orchard has snapped up all North American rights to Max Winkler’s dark comedy Flower which had its world premiere Thursday at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The deal came together quickly, marking the first for this year’s fest, with buyers clamoring immediately following the film’s premiere.

Flower follows 17-year old Erica Vandross (Zoey Deutch) and her two friends as they spend their free time making money in unconventional ways, acting as self appointed, free-wheeling vigilantes of the San Fernando Valley. Everything changes for Erica when her mother (Kathryn Hahn) invites her boyfriend (Tim Heidecker) and his estranged son (Joey Morgan) to move in with them. Adam Scott also stars as an older man who catches Erica’s eye.

Winkler, the son of Happy Days star Henry Winkler, is a seasoned helmer of TV and film with credits that include Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The New Girl. His feature directorial debut Ceremony starring Uma Thurman, Jake Johnson and Michael Angarano premiered at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival and Magnolia distributed. Winkler is currently writing the upcoming Rocketeer reboot at Disney.

The 2012 Blacklist script for Flower was written by Alex McAulay (it was located on the list next to Whiplash and Hell or High Water), and was optioned by Danny McBride, Jody Hill, and David Gordon Green’s production company Rough House Pictures. The trio who serve as EPs along with Andrew Levitas sent it to Winkler. Matt Spicer and Winkler are also credited in writing. Producers are Spicer, Eric B. Fleischman, Brandon James, and Sean Tabibian.
