OPENING NIGHT, CENTERPIECE & CLOSING NIGHT FILMS

JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME
Opening Night Film
East Coast Premiere
Directors: Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass
Cast: Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Susan Sarandon, Judy Greer, Rae Dawn Chong
Directors Mark and Jay Duplass take on brotherly dynamics as well as fate and love in this delightfully authentic and moving comic gem. Thirty-four-year-old Jeff (Jason Segel) spends his days steadily unlocking the profound mysteries of the universe … from the comfort of his mother’s basement. A call from his exasperated mom (Susan Sarandon) begging him to complete a simple errand shakes a begrudging Jeff off the couch. Suddenly, the universe begins to deliver important signs that could unlock his destiny. Jeff crosses paths with his disgruntled older brother (Ed Helms), who is embroiled in a crisis of his own. A hysterical, madcap journey ensues, forcing the two very different brothers to face earth-shattering challenges side by side. The Hamptons International Film Festival is thrilled to present JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME as the Opening Night Film of our 2011 Festival.

LIKE CRAZY
Centerpiece Film
East Coast Premiere
Director: Drake Doremus
Cast: Felicity Jones, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlie Bewley, Alex Kingston, Oliver Muirhead
It is rare for sweet, implacable first love portrayed on screen to connect wholly with the heart. LIKE CRAZY is a dazzling exception, featuring two brilliant young actors, Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones, with remarkable screen chemistry. A modern twist on star-crossed lovers, Jones plays Anna, an undergraduate from the UK studying abroad in Los Angeles. A crush on classmate Jacob (Yelchin, HIFF Breakthrough Performer) turns into an exceptional love affair.  Rash, youthful decisions and a visa debacle threaten to separate the two indefinitely, and they are thrust wide-eyed into a world of confounding adult decisions. A smartly wound love story with a soul, LIKE CRAZY is magical, as well as sincere, in its approach to newfound love. The Hamptons International Film Festival is honored to present LIKE CRAZY as our 2011 Centerpiece Film.

BUTTER
Southampton Opening Night Film
East Coast Premiere
Director: Jim Field Smith
Cast: Jennifer Garner, Olivia Wilde, Ty Burrell, Yara Shahidi, Hugh Jackman, Alicia Silverstone
Art, politics, and food collide in this star-studded dark comedy. Bob Pickler (Ty Burrell) is the undisputed king of butter carving throughout the Midwest. His artful carvings of Newt Gingrich and scenes from SCHINDLER’S LIST have earned him the title, “The Elvis of Butter.” Now that he’s decided to withdraw from the world of competitive butter carving, the championship title is up for grabs. His wife, Laura (Jennifer Garner), will stop at nothing to keep the title in the family, but first she’ll have to beat working girl Brooke (Olivia Wilde) and the young orphan Destiny (Yara Shahidi). When Laura teams up with her former flame, sleazy car salesman Boyd Bolton (Hugh Jackman), all bets are off in this uproarious and outrageous comedy.

THE ARTIST
East Hampton Closing Night Film
Director: Michel Hazanavicius
Cast: Jean Dujardin, Bérénice Bejo, John Goodman, James Cromwell, Penelope Ann Miller, Missi Pyle
Travel back to a golden age of cinema in this enchanting, comedic tribute to silent films. It’s 1927, and handsome, witty, and beguiling George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is Hollywood’s biggest movie star. Unhappily married, Valentin has unwittingly stolen the heart of a nobody-turned-extra named Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo), who dreams of becoming a great actress in her own right. When the studio converts to the “talkies,” Valentin balks at the prospect: who would want to hear actors speaking? Valentin takes it upon himself to keep the silent era alive, risking his career and his fortune, and stiff competition from his former allies.

SPOTLIGHT FILMS

ANOTHER HAPPY DAY
Director: Sam Levinson

Ellen Barkin gives a stunning lead performance as Lynn, a once-divorced, twice-married mother of four, returning home to Annapolis, Maryland for the wedding of her eldest son, Dylan. There are no shortages of demons in the closet in Lynn’s immediate family, and the antics of her defiant teenage son, and impossibly toxic relationships with her mother and ex-husband, threaten to derail the weekend. Memorable performances capture the humor and hardship of family living: Ellen Burstyn, Demi Moore, Ezra Miller (HIFF Breakthrough Performer), and Kate Bosworth round out the stellar ensemble cast.

COLLABORATOR
East Coast Premiere
Director: Martin Donovan
Cast: Martin Donovan, David Morse, Olivia Williams, Melissa Auf der Maur
Director and star Martin Donovan (INSOMNIA, THE SENTINEL) takes on class, celebrity, and writer’s block in this tightly wound psychological drama. Donovan plays Robert Longfellow, a New York-based playwright whose latest failures seem to signal the end of an otherwise successful career. After a string of soul-crushing meetings during a brief visit to his native Los Angeles, he has two strange encounters: the first with a celebrity actress and former flame; the second, his ex-con former neighbor.  When an unthinkable scenario endangers his return trip to his wife and children, the tools of Longfellow’s craft may surface as his rescue device.

CORIOLANUS
Director: Ralph Fiennes
Cast: Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler, Brian Cox, Vanessa Redgrave, James Nesbitt
Ralph Fiennes’s directorial debut CORIOLANUS transforms one of Shakespeare’s bloodiest, most imposing tragedies into an intensely modern cinematic experience. A skilled and brutal war hero of the Roman army, Coriolanus (Fiennes), is persuaded to take political office by his mother (Vanessa Redgrave) and other bureaucrats after a successful campaign against Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler) and the Volscian army. Soon though, political machinations and Coriolanus’ own pride enrage the public. Forced into exile, Coriolanus exacts his revenge alongside the unlikeliest of allies. Anchored by searing performances, CORNIOLANUS will leave you on the edge of your seat.

THE GOOD DOCTOR
Director: Lance Daly
Cast: Orlando Bloom, Riley Keough, Troy Garity, Rob Morrow, Taraji P. Henson, Michael Peña
Suspenseful medical dramas are a dime-a-dozen, but Lance Daly’s THE GOOD DOCTOR is a rare exception, an enthralling mix of psychological thriller and intense character study with a riveting (and against-type) Orlando Bloom performance at its center. Bloom stars as Dr. Martin Blake, an initially unassuming first-year medical resident. Failing to achieve approval and confidence from both his superiors and the hospital staff, Blake soon becomes close with an alluring Diane (Riley Keough) whom he has recently cured. This intimacy transforms into something more disturbing as Blake grows more and more infatuated with his former patient. Taraji P. Henson, Rob Morrow and Michael Peña add to the impressive cast.

MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE
Director: Sean Durkin
Cast: Elizabeth Olsen, Brady Corbet, Hugh Dancy, John Hawkes, Sarah Paulson
Good luck finding another feature-length debut this year as startlingly assured as Sean Durkin’s MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE. This masterfully wrought psychological drama concerns a troubled young woman who flees an upstate New York cult and seeks refuge in the quiet home of her sister and sister’s husband. Durkin boldly floats between past and present, lodging viewers firmly inside Martha’s troubled mind. Featuring a magnetic performance by newcomer Elizabeth Olsen, as well as standout supporting turns from Sarah Paulson and John Hawkes, Durkin’s haunting thriller is one of the finest American films of 2011.

MELANCHOLIA
Director: Lars von Trier
Cast: Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, John Hurt, Alexander Skarsgård, Stellan Skarsgård
When does the end of the world become a welcome event? Lars von Trier’s magnificent apocalyptic epic explores the darkest corners of self-destruction in the face of terrifying planetary events. MELANCHOLIA is a twisted fairytale in two parts: the first, the story of a wedding that begins to go mysteriously awry; the second, a family struggles with the realization that life as they know it will soon come to an end. Together, these stories form a powerful, personal saga about pain, sabotage, and survival, one that will certainly be talked about for years to come. Kirsten Dunst’s arresting lead performance garnered her the Best Actress award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

In the face of bureaucratic opposition, Humphreys embarks on a journey to unite these lost sons and daughters with their loved ones, often risking her own safety. ORANGES AND SUNSHINE is the story of a seemingly ordinary but truly courageous woman.

Starring Bausch’s own Tanztheater Wuppertal ensemble, this performance-driven documentary film features many of Bausch’s most acclaimed pieces of modern dance performed in school gyms, industrial parks, and, in one riveting sequence, a water-logged stage. The strange-yet-powerful art of Bausch stunned audiences for over 35 years and has now found its perfect compliment in Wenders’ sumptuous, lively fusion of film, movement, music, and spectacle.
