3 September 2015 Spotlight Comments Off on “Spotlight” Selected For Telluride Film Festival!
The 42nd Telluride Film Festival has announced this year’s line-up and it was announced that “Spotlight” is part of it’s main program. The festival runs from September 4-7 and for more information be sure to head over to the official website. The movie will have screenings two screenings on Saturday, September 5, and two screenings on Sunday, September 6, according to the official schedule. The Saturday 4:15PM will be followed by a Q&A Discussion followed by the screening. The official schedule mentions Tom McCarthy, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams will be there “in person” and we assume they will be present for the screening and Q&A panel.
In 2001, a new Boston Globe editor (Liev Schreiber) assigns a crack team of reporters (Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Brian d’Arcy James) to investigate Boston’s Catholic Archdiocese handling of a priest’s sexual misconduct case. What they uncover is, to say the least, shocking: a vast secret labyrinth of suffering victims; self-serving institutional hypocrisy from the Church; and weary complacence from city officials. Completing the amazing ensemble are Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup (attorneys of differing moral hue), Jamey Sheridan and Len Cariou (priests defending the system). Writer-director Tom McCarthy (THE VISITOR, THE STATION AGENT) has crafted, with co-writer Josh Singer, a rich tale with wit and devastating compassion. Though we may know the story, SPOTLIGHT is filled with twists and surprises, making for drama that’s thrilling and yet grounded with substantial gravitas. –LG (U.S., 2015, 126m) In person: Tom McCarthy, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams
Screenings: H/Sat 9AM | G/Sat 4:15PM Q&A | C/Sun 6:30PM | O/Sun 8:30PM
The movie will have it’s world premiere red carpet screening today during the Venice Film Festival. Rachel’s co-stars Mark Ruffalo and Stanley Tucci alongside writer/director Tom McCarthy are present for the press duties so far. The movie will also screen during the Toronto International Film Festival later this month.
The first reviews of “Spotlight” are getting released after it’s first press & industry screenings at the Venice Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival. We will make a round-up of the first reviews in this post, and as always we will try to focus on excerpts on Rachel’s performance. The initial reaction seems very positive and we can’t wait to read more reviews! We will edit this post when more reviews are being released.
“And again, the cast, tasked with delivering all this information and making it feel natural, are remarkable, investing sometimes just the tiniest glances or the shortest of lines with an acreage of personality (it shows that most of them had met, and in some cases trailed, the real-life people they play) […] Rachel McAdams brings her typical resolute intelligence to Sacha Pfeiffer, another of Spotlight’s four-person team: whether quietly interviewing abuse victims or caught off guard coming face to face with one of the accused priests, she’s entirely human and it’s telling how often McCarthy chooses to resolve a scene on a look from her.”

The Wrap just broke the story that “Every Thing Will Be Fine” has found a distributor in the U.S.A. IFC Films picked up the rights and will release the movie on December 4, 2015.
IFC Films announced today that the company is acquiring U.S. rights to Wim Wenders‘ Every Thing Will Be Fine. Wim Wenders‘ film, with a screenplay by Bjørn Olaf Johannessen, stars James Franco, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rachel McAdams, Marie-Josée Croze, Robert Naylor, Patrick Bauchau and Peter Stormare.
Every Thing Will Be Fine was produced by Gian-Piero Ringel and executive produced by Jeremy Thomas, Hussain Amarshi, Erwin M. Schmidt and Vince Jolivette.
The film will make its North American Premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival in the Masters section. IFC Films will release the film on December 4, 2015.
In this 3D drama, a tragic car accident links the lives of a struggling writer (Franco), his long-suffering girlfriend (McAdams), a grieving mother (Gainsbourg) and a publisher (Croze).
“We are thrilled to once more be working with Wim Wenders – a legendary filmmaker who brings great sensitivity to all his work. In Every Thing Will Be Fine, he delivers a compelling and beautifully shot examination of grief,” says Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films. Sundance Selects/IFC Films previously released two of Wenders’ past films including Pina (2011) and Land Of Plenty (2004).
The deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, SVP of Acquisitions and Productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films, with HanWay Films on behalf of the filmmakers.

Director Wes Craven passed away on Sunday. He was 72. Craven made his mark as horror director and directed horror classics as A Nightmare On Elm Street and Scream. Craven directed Rachel and co-star Cillian Murphy in 2005’s psychological thriller “Red Eye“. The movie celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary a few weeks ago, on August 19. We want to give our sincere condolences to his loved ones during this difficult time.
Craven continued to support Rachel’s career on social media, years after working together. Most recently he supported Rachel’s casting news in “True Detective” by tweeting “she’d be wonderful“. He also attended the “To The Wonder” Los Angeles premiere, alongside his wife Iya Labunka, back in 2013 where he was pictured with Rachel.
