U.s. Films To Take Prominent Position At Venice

U.S.-produced films, which got short shrift from the Berlin Film Festival in February Cannes Film Festival in May, have been given a prominent place at the Venice Film Festival, which is scheduled for Sept. 2-12. Six U.S. films have been chosen to compete for the prestigious Golden Lion award -- among them the latest documentary from Michael Moore, Capitalism A Love Story , which takes a look at the current economic crisis. Also premiering in Venice is John Hillcoat's The Road, starring Charlize Theron and Viggo Mortensen. A Single Man which stars Colin Firth and Juliana Moore is also likely to attract much attention, since it marks the entry into film of fashion designer Tom Ford as director and co-writer.
