Red Carpet screenings at the 42nd Denver Film Festival


The 42nd Denver Film Festival announced today their slate of Red Carpet screenings at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House featuring an Opening Night presentation of writer/director Rian Johnson's latest work, KNIVES OUT. Featuring a star-studded ensemble cast including Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Toni Collette, KNIVES OUT will premiere on Oct. 31 with a Red Carpet at 7 p.m and screening at 8 p.m. The Red Carpet Presentations will continue with the Festival's Centerpiece on Thursday, Nov. 7 featuring Trey Edward Shults' latest work WAVES. Already a favorite among critics, WAVES, starring Kelvin Harrison Jr., Taylor Russell, and Lucas Hedges, will begin with a Red Carpet at 7 p.m. and screening at 8 p.m. The Festival will wrap up its Red Carpet Presentations with two screenings on Saturday, Nov. 9. The Red Carpet Matinee will feature Fernando Meirelles' latest film THE TWO POPES, starring Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce, at 2 p.m. and Closing Night will feature Noah Baumbach's hotly anticipated new film MARRIAGE STORY starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson. Closing Night will begin with a Red Carpet at 7 p.m. and conclude with a screening at 8 p.m.

"I truly believe this year's slate of Red Carpet Presentations represents the best of the year," said Festival Director, Britta Erickson. "From the witty and wildly entertaining Knives Out, to the complicated and poignant Waves, there is something in our Red Carpet and Special Presentation line-up for everyone. The talent represented across the four Red Carpet presentations, all directed by true auteurs, feature performances from some of the top actors in today’s cinema universe.”

Along with the Red Carpet Presentations, Denver Film Festival also announced today their slate of Special Presentations. Highlights include the noir thriller MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN, written and directed by Edward Norton, Céline Sciamma's PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE, Chinonye Chukwu's breakthrough directorial debut of CLEMENCY, and Terrence Malick's latest work, A HIDDEN LIFE.  Special Presentations screen throughout the twelve-day Festival at both the Sie FilmCenter and UA Pavilions.

Red Carpet Presentations:

dir. Rian Johnson / USA
When famed crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead, debonair detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) must untangle the web of red herrings and lies spun by Harlan’s dysfunctional inner circle to get to the truth in this delightful whodunit.

dir. Noah Baumbach / USA
This one is going to hurt—which isn’t to say you won’t laugh through the tears. Writer-director Noah Baumbach and stars Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson are drawing career-high raves for their delicately contoured and shaded, exquisitely sad and funny portrait of a couple negotiating a divorce.

dir. Fernando Meirelles / UK/Italy/Argentina/USA
Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce star in this incisive, fascinating account of the transfer of power between Popes Benedict and Francis, directed by Fernando Meirelles (City of GodThe Constant Gardener) and written by Anthony McCarten (The Theory of EverythingBohemian Rhapsody).

dir. Trey Edward Shults / USA
Unfolding in two parts, this astonishing family drama about a suburban African-American family rocked by tragedy revolves around the pair of siblings at its center to explore how we learn to forgive in the face of grief, love without condition, and grow toward the light in the darkest of times.

Special Presentations:

dir. Tom Harper / USA/UK
In 1862, daredevil balloon pilot Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) teamed up with pioneering meteorologist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) to study the weather—flying higher than anyone in history in the process. This thrilling adventure pits human grit and ingenuity against increasingly thin air.

dir. Chinonye Chukwu / USA
Prison warden Bernadine Williams (Alfre Woodard) scrupulously maintains her emotional distance from everyone and everything—including a failing marriage and a botched execution. But with plans to carry out another death sentence underway, her nerves are starting to fray in this devastating drama.

dir. Alla Kovgan / Germany/France/USA
This stunning documentary about visionary modern-dance choreographer Merce Cunningham bursts onto the screen in glorious 3D. Moscow-born director Alla Kovgan traces three decades of Cunningham's genius through archival footage and the recreation of some of his most memorable works.

dir. Terrence Malick / Germany/USA
Devoted husband and pious churchgoer Franz Jägerstätter is faced with an intolerable choice in World War II-era Austria: take an oath of loyalty to Hitler or be executed as a traitor. Terrence Malick's latest epic explores faith and moral certitude in the face of earthly consequences.

dir. Alma Har'el / USA
This highly personal and cathartic drama based on writer and co-star Shia LaBeouf's own experiences as a child actor follows young Otis Lort as he attempts to mend his contentious relationship with an abusive, alcoholic father over the course of a decade.

dir. Dror Moreh / UK/Israel
With unprecedented access to key players, this absorbing behind-the-scenes documentary reveals how, in the 1990s, the United States nearly achieved the impossible—securing peace between Israel and its neighbors. The lessons to be learned from the not-so-distant past couldn't be more urgent.

dir. Edward Norton / USA
Edward Norton directs and stars in this offbeat homage to classic film noir, adapted from a Jonathan Lethem novel, about a private detective with Tourette syndrome investigating the murder of his boss. The crack supporting cast includes Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin, Willem Dafoe, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.

dir. Václav Marhoul / Czech Republic/Slovakia/Ukraine
This unsparing black-and-white Czech period drama follows an unnamed boy as he wanders aimlessly across the countryside at the bloody close of World War II. In his fight to survive, he is both witness to and victim of increasingly savage acts at the hands of villagers and soldiers alike.

dir. Céline Sciamma / France
French writer/director Céline Sciamma won the Best Screenplay award at Cannes for this affecting, elegantly subversive period romance set in the 18th century, which follows artist Marianne on a delicate assignment: painting the wedding portrait of reluctant bride-to-be Héloïse.

dir. Scott Z. Burns / USA
Adam Driver and Annette Bening head up an excellent ensemble cast in this smart political thriller that tackles the true story of Daniel J. Jones, a Senate staffer charged with investigating the CIA's use of torture in the wake of 9/11.

dir. Marco Bellocchio / Italy/France/Brazil/Germany
For all its extravagance, this engrossing spectacle of a drama is based on a true story: the life of Tommaso Buscetta, a made man turned informant whose collaboration with the Italian government led to a seven-year trial that toppled the Casa Nostra in the 1980s.

dir. Hirokazu Kore-eda / France/Japan
Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche, and Ethan Hawke star in the latest from acclaimed Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda (Shoplifters, DFF41) about a legendary French actress who may or may not regret putting career before family all her life. This sweet-and-sour drama is classic Kore-eda.
