Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #76. Wim Wenders’ Every Thing Will Be Fine

Every Thing Will Be Fine

Director: Wim Wenders // Writers: Bjorn Olaf Johannssen

New German Wave auteur Wim Wenders has lately been focusing on documentaries, both 2011’s Pina and 2013’s The Salt of the Earth visually resplendent explorations of their subject matters, providing the filmmaker with some of his most worthwhile titles in years. Wenders’ last feature was the poorly received Palermo Shooting in 2008 and he hasn’t had a universally celebrated fiction film in quite some time. Though sharing the same title as a 2010 Cristoffer Boe film, Wenders is again revisiting 3D (which he utilized for Pina) and an intriguing cast that consists of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rachel McAdams promises to be an energetic new direction for Wenders, described as a family drama about a man who accidentally hits and kills a child while driving aimlessly around the outskirts of town after a trivial domestic quarrel.

Cast: Rachel McAdams, Charlotte Gainsbourg, James Franco

Producers: Neue Road Movies’ Gian-Piero Ringel (Only Lovers Left Alive), Mer Film’s Maria Ekerhovd (I Am Yours).

U.S. Distributor: Rights available

Release Date: With Wenders receiving the Honorary Golden Bear in Berlin this year, we’re assuming his latest work will be unveiled there.
