Wim Wenders’ 3D ‘Every Thing Will Be Fine,’ Starring James Franco, Will Bow in Berlin

Wim Wenders' 3D 'Every Thing Will Be Fine,' Starring James Franco, Will Bow in Berlin

This long anticipated 3D redemption drama (and Wenders’ second use of the format after “Pina”) centers on a writer (Franco) who, after causing the accidental death of a child, spends the next 12 years examining the tragedy’s effect on his life and the life of the child’s mother.

As previously announced, Wenders will also be receiving an honorary Golden Bear at the festival, with 10 of his films screening as tribute, including 1984 Palme d’Or winner “Paris, Texas” and his latest documentary, the Oscar-nominated “The Salt of the Earth.”

The following films round out the Berlinale competition lineup including, notably, films from “No” director Pablo Larrain, Oliver Hirschbiegel, Andrew Haigh, Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog and, screening out-of-competition, Kenneth Branagh’s “Cinderella.”
