Top 150 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2020: #82. The Roads Not Taken – Sally Potter

The Roads Not Taken

Sally Potter’s ninth feature will be The Roads Not Taken (formerly titled Molly), a narrative taking place across three continents featuring a stellar cast. The project is produced by Christopher Sheppard, Elizabeth Lodge Stepp, and Josh Penn and stars Elle Fanning, (returning to work for Potter after 2012’s Ginger and Rosa – read review), Javier Bardem, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, Laura Linney and Savion Glover. Potter’s exceptional debut, the experimental Julie Christie headlined The Gold Diggers (1983), played in Berlin’s Forum program. Since then, Potter entered Berlin’s competition in 2009 with Rage and again in 2017 with The Party. Potter’s Tilda Swinton headlined breakthrough, the fascinating adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando competed in Venice, where she would return in 2000 with The Man Who Cried.

Gist: Molly follows 24 hours in the life of the mentally frazzled Leo and his titular daughter, described as an epic adventure about all the possibilities of where life can take you.

Release Date/Prediction: With a March 13th release by the Bleecker Street folks proposed stateside, we expect Potter to potentially compete for the third time in Berlin.
