The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced the full slate of this year's 52nd annual event, and as usual it's a tightly curated assortment of world cinema.
World premieres previously announced include David Fincher's "Gone Girl" (opening night) and Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice" (centerpiece), but in addition, there are a slew of North American premieres at the event. They include Dominik Graf's "Beloved Sisters," Mathieu Amalric's "The Blue Room," Asia Argento's "Misunderstood," Bertrand Bonello's "Saint Laurent" and Alice Rohrwacher's "The Wonders."
Sony Classics will have a solid presence, bringing Sundance hit "Whiplash" and Cannes sensations "Foxcatcher" and "Mr. Turner." Also previously announced, Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" will serve as closing night presentation.
