Godard’s ‘Goodbye to Language’ Will Open Ebertfest 2015

Godard's 'Goodbye to Language' Will Open Ebertfest 2015

The upcoming 17th annual Roger Ebert Film Festival, better known as Ebertfest, will open April 15 with Jean-Luc Godard’s radical 3D experiment “Goodbye to Language,” with star Héloïse Godet in attendance.

The fest will also present a special screening of director Robert De Niro’s 1993 “A Bronx Tale,” with producer Jon Kilik and star and screenwriter Chazz Palminteri attending. In his four-star review, Ebert wrote, “’A Bronx Tale’ is a very funny movie sometimes, and very touching at other times. It is filled with life and colorful characters and great lines of dialogue, and De Niro, in his debut as a director, finds the right notes as he moves from laughter to anger to tears. What’s important about the film is that it’s about values.”
