NYFF: Life of Pi to Open, Flight to Close
The New York Film Festival, which is from September 28 to October 14, will feature at least two major Oscar contenders, and probably many more. What we do know is that Ang Lee will make his third appearence at NYFF after The Ice Storm and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, with his latest Life of Pi. Some scenes of the film have already been screened, and word is that it is a beautiful film.
Already announced, but not on this site, is that on the tailend of the festival, Robert Zemeckis' latest Flight will be closing the fest. I am pretty excited about this one. The trailer look incredibly entertaining, and when Denzel is on, he is one of the best, hell so is Zemeckis when he is on. This could be a surprise Oscar contender, and the fact that it is closing such a big fest means that others agree with me. Can't wait till September!!
