My old friend Nick McDonell wrote the novel Twelve — which debuts as an adapted film today starring Chace Crawford — when we were both still in high school. A story written by a 17-year-old about affluent NYC private school kids involved in drugs, sex, and violence, it received lots of attention from the hype machine and turned out to be a bestseller. It's a page-turner and it resonated with me at that age and as a fellow prep school student, so I'll admit, I've read it several times! Nevertheless, I was excited to see the trailer . . . but not only to relive the old tale. With wealthy Upper East Siders as characters, the film also showcases gorgeous interiors, which of course is the silver lining! If you watch Gossip Girl, you know what I mean. Come along and take a sneak peek of the interiors!
