I am en route to the Telluride Film Festival (currently on a layover in Denver) as I publish this photo provided by the festival. I’ll post some dispatches from the fest this weekend, once I get settled.
The lineup will not officially be released until tomorrow morning, but the roster includes the world premieres of Todd Solondz’ latest, “Palindromes,” starring Ellen Barkin in the story of a young runaway; Sally Potter’s “Yes,” starring Joan Allen; Roger Michell’s “Enduring Love; Lodge Kerrigan’s “Keane,” about a mentally disturbed homeless man; Istvan Szabo’s “Being Julia,” based on a Somerset Maughm story, with Annette Bening and Jeremy Irons; and Ken Burns’ latest documentary, “Unforgivable Blackness,” about boxer Jack Johnson. Other new documentaries on tap include Michael Tucker & Petra Epperlein’s “Gunner Palace,” about a U.S. gunner battalion in Iraq and Jacque Richard’s “Henri Langlois: Phantom of the Cinematheque.”
We’ll have the full lineup in tomorrow’s edition of indieWIRE.
