In the Future
Director: Paolo Sorrentino // Writer: Paolo Sorrentino
While Italian auteur went home empty-handed from Cannes 2013 with The Great Beauty, he went on to win the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. One of the most renowned modern masters of Italian cinema, Sorrentino returns to the English language for a second dip following 2011’s Sean Penn headlined This Must Be the Place. While that was probably our least favorite of Sorrentino’s filmography (especially compared to his last film or 2008’s Il Divo), we’re excited for the starry line-up of his latest, including Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Jane Fonda, and Rachel Weisz. The narrative focuses on two old friends, both in the late autumn of their lives. One a retired composer/conductor, the other a filmmaker writing what he assumes will be his last film, we assume surprises are in store for both.
Cast: Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Jane Fonda, Rachel Weisz, and Paul Dano.
Production Co.: Indigo Film, Bis Films, Pathe, C-Films, Number 9 Films
U.S. Distributor: Rights available
Release Date: Sorrentino’s played in the Main Competition at Cannes five times previously, including with his previous English language title, so we’re sure this will be appearing there, especially considering a domestic release date is already rumored for late May.
