Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #48. Mia Hansen-Love’s Eden


Director: Mia Hansen-Love
Writers: Mia Hansen-Love, Sven Hansen-Love
Producers: Charles Gillibert, Jimmy Price
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Greta Gerwig, Brady Corbet, Laura Smet, Golshifteh Farahani, Pauline Etienne

After winning the Un Certain Regard Grand Jury prize for her 2009 sophomore feature The Father of My Children, Mia Hansen-Love (who is married to Olivier Assayas), has quickly become one of the most notable directors working with her lauded trio of films. Her latest was co-written by her brother, who was a deejaying in France in the 90s. An exciting and internationally mixed cast (American notables Gerwig and Corbet join Iranian actress Farhani and a slew of known French players, like Smet and up and comer Etienne) should help broaden interests here as well.

Gist: A chronicle of the electronic music boom of the 1990s.

Release Date: We’re hoping to see Hansen-Love invited to the Main Competition at Cannes.
