New York Film Festival Lineup Includes BRIDGE OF SPIES Premiere, CAROL, and BROOKLYN

     August 12, 2015


The full lineup for the New York Film Festival has been announced, and it’s a hell of a list. The biggest addition is the world premiere of Steven Spielberg’s thriller Bridge of Spies, starring Tom Hanks as a Brooklyn lawyer who’s enlisted to navigate the Cold War exchange of a captured American U-2 pilot. Bridge of Spies joins the previously announced opener The Walk, from director Robert Zemeckis, as well as centerpiece film Steve Jobs and closing night film Miles Ahead, director/star Don Cheadle’s biopic of Miles Davis.

Also joining the lineup are John Crowley’s fantastic immigrant drama Brooklyn (read my review from Sundance here), Todd Haynes’ new film Carol, starring Cate Blanchett, which drew raves at its Cannes premiere, and Michael Moore’s new documentary Where to Invade Next, which will first debut at TIFF.

Check out the full lineup below. The 2015 New York Film Festival runs from September 25 – October 11.
