Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2022: #63. Ira Sachs’ Passages
Entering his third decade in filmmaking, Ira Sachs (The Delta, Forty Shades of Blue, Keep the Lights On, Love Is Strange) has moved into what we can call the Euro portion of his filmmaking career setting his narratives in culturally more diverse setting and having back to back projects being produced by Saïd Ben Saïd (Frankie). Announced during Cannes, Passages went into production in October with the likes of Ben Whishaw, Franz Rogowski and Adèle Exarchopoulos.
Gist: This is about two men (Whishaw, Rogowski) who’ve been together for more than a decade, and one of them has an affair with a woman (Exarchopoulos).
Release Date/Prediction: Passages will likely be included in the Main Competition at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.
