Hollywood To Be Well Represented At London Film Fest
Although Hollywood films have been given short shrift at several leading overseas film festivals in recent years, they dominate the lineup announced today (Wednesday) for this year's London Film Festival. Of 197 feature films being screened at the festival, which runs from Oct. 13-28, 34 are from the U.S., plus several restored prints of U.S. cinema classics. The new films include The American, starring George Clooney; Black Swan, starring Natalie Portman; The Kids Are All Right, starring Annette Bening as Julian Moore, and the controversial documentary The Tillman Story. They join such films as Alejandro Gonzelez Iñáritu's Biutiful, starring Javier Bardem, Danny Boyle's 127 Hours , starring James Franco; David Seidler's The King's Speech, starring Colin Firth; and Cannes Film Festival winner Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives.
