“Love and Other Drugs” To Open, “Black Swan” To Close AFI Fest 2010
Edward Zwick’s film is set to open the festival on November 4th. This could give the Jake Gyllenhaal/Anne Hathaway film Love and Other Drugs just the right kind of push to get launched into the 2010 Awards Season. I’m really excited for film. It’s set to open wide on November 24th, just in time for Thanksgiving.
Darren Aronofsky’s psychological thriller starring Natalie Portman is set to close the festival on November 11th. Portman is already the front-runner for Best Actress this year based on the buzz the film has already generated on the festival circuit. Black Swan is set for a limited release on December 1st.
Let’s not forget, as well, that AFI Fest has hired David Lynch as their first ever guest artistic director. I feel like I would LOVE to go to this festival. Hopefully one of you can go for me and revel in its awesomeness!
