“Gravity” To Open The 70th Venice International Film Festival

“Gravity” To Open The 70th Venice International Film Festival

The highly anticipated flick Gravity is slated to open in Venice at the anniversary La Biennale. Famed director of Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men, and Y Tu Mama Tam Bien director Alfonso Cuaron, directs Hollywood heavy weights George Clooney and Sandra Bullock in this suspense sci-fi thriller. 

This year’s main jury is led by director Bernardo Bertolucci (“Last Tango in Paris”) and includes Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto and French actress Virginie Ledoyen.

Unusually, two documentaries are among the 20 films vying for the top prize. One is “The Unknown Known: The Life and Times of Donald Rumsfeld” by Errol Morris, about the former U.S. Defense Secretary who oversaw the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Other U.S. contenders in the competition are “Parkland” (by Peter Landesman), starring Zac Efron, about the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated; “Joe” (by David Gordon Green), where Nicolas Cage plays an ex-convict who encounters a teenage boy; and “Night Moves” (by Kelly Reichardt and starring Jesse Eisenberg), about three environmentalists who conspire to destroy a dam.

Judi Dench plays a mother searching for the son taken away from her decades earlier in Stephen Frears’s “Philomena,” also in the official competition.

Screening outside the official contest is a documentary about cyclist Lance Armstrong and Italian director Ettore Scola’s movie on the life of fellow filmmaker Federico Fellini.
