House Movies Hamptons Film Festival Picks 4-Star List With Hugh Jackman, Olivia Colman,…

The Hamptons Film Festival will celebrate its 30th anniversary by taking place over two weekends, a total of 10 days, for the very first time. I’m impressed that they picked a four-star list of the best movies of the fall.

JThey include one of my favorite offerings from Toronto, “Empire of Light,” by Sam Mendes with Olivia Colman. They have Hugh Jackman in “The Son”, Harry Styles in “My Policeman”, Colin Farrell in “The Banshees of Inisherin”, and a spectacular Netflix film called “The Swimmers” which is not at the New York Film Festival. and could be the “CODA” of 2022.

The list is sensational. The opening night film is the excellent “Living” with Bill Nighy. Highlights are Hugh Jackman in “The Son” by Florian Zeller and “Women Talking” by Sarah Polley. The closing party is “Sr”. like in a movie about the late director Robert Downey Sr. commissioned by his Iron Man, RD Jr.

I am very excited to see Peter Hedges’ “The Same Storm,” plus Brendan Fraser in Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale,” Laura Poitras’ award-winning Venice film about the opioid epidemic, and “She Said” about the Harvey Weinstein investigation. There’s also Korean director Park Chan-Wook’s hot “Decision to Leave,” and a revealing documentary produced by Hillary and Chelsea Clinton called “In Her Hands,” about women in the fall of Kabul.

Besides, it’s fall, it’s the Hamptons, the best place at the best time of year.
