The Galas
Dorian Gray, Oliver Parker, United Kingdom
World Premiere

St Trinian’s director Oliver Parker is planning to helm another adaptation of an Oscar Wilde story. Parker, whose previous credits include An Ideal Husband and The Importance Of Being Earnest, now has his eye on Wilde’s only published novel, The Picture Of Dorian Gray. Parker claims he approached directing the novel as if he were working on a horror film.

The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, Rebecca Miller, USA
North American Premiere

As a more emotional take on the themes examined in American Beauty, this internalized drama is subtle and unpredictable and is said to feature terrific performances from an eclectic cast.

Abel Ferrara’s cult crime drama Bad Lieutenant is given a revamp/remake/sister film with this Werner Herzog-helmed production that takes its inspiration from the original, but focuses on new characters and plotlines.

The film is also set to star Eva Mendes, Val Kilmer, and Xzibit.

Capitalism: A Love Story, Michael Moore, USA
North American Premiere

The announcement of the title of Michael Moore’s new film was enough to generate headline news. Moore’s new documentary about the U.S. economy will be titled Capitalism: A Love Story. He went on to say “It will be the perfect date movie, It’s got it all – lust, passion, romance and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day. It’s a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let’s just say it: It’s capitalism”.
