Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #56. Wim Wenders’ Everything Will be Fine

Everything Will Be Fine

Director: Wim Wenders
Writer: Bjorn Olaff Johanessenn
Producers: Gian-Piero Ringel, Erwin M. Schmidt
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marie-Josée Croze

Initially, Sarah Polley had been attached in the role that went to McAdams (we’re hoping it’s because Polley is hard at work on her adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s Alias Grace), but even still, for Wim Wender’s first fiction feature since 2008’s Palermo Shooting, it’s got quite the exciting cast (and yes, it bears the same title as a 2010 film from Danish filmmaker Cristoffer Boe). The 2011 documentary Pina apparently gave Wenders the 3D bug, so we are curious to see how that technology will further influence the art house auteur.

Gist: While driving aimlessly after a quarrel with his girlfriend, a writer accidentally runs over and kills a child. The accident and its aftermath deeply traumatizes him. He struggles to make sense of what happened and continue on with life, but when he looks in the mirror, he sees a murderer.

Release Date: This should definitely be a candidate for a slot at Cannes in the Main Competition.
