15 awards season hopefuls looking for distribution
These currently homeless films could find room if picked up
Director: Susanne Bier
Stars: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence
Festival(s): Maybe Telluride
Why it's on our radar: When a movie like "Serena" has been ready to go for as long as it has and no one has bit yet, well, that tends to mean something. Not popping up on any of the fall fest schedules so far is another bad sign. Indeed, word on the film hasn't been good. Susanne Bier just can't seem to turn that corner into domestic success. Maybe we'll see it show up at Telluride but it's rather strange that a film with the stars of one of last season's biggest successes can't find traction.
