“Foxcatcher” Named American Express Gala for London Film Festival
It’s one of the most-anticipated films of the season and “Foxcatcher” will receive a special honor at the forthcoming 58th BFI London Film Festival.
London Film Festival director Clare Stewart told press, “We are delighted to be announcing that ‘Foxcatcher’ will be our 2014 American Express gala presentation, marking the fifth year of our dynamic LFF partnership with one of the year's most powerful and important films. Featuring enthralling performances from its entire cast and directed with unswerving rigour, ‘Foxcatcher’ not only confirms Bennett Miller as one of the world's most significant contemporary filmmakers, it powerfully demonstrates the clarity of his vision: get to the truth by creating fiction out of fact.”
“I’m thrilled that ‘Foxcatcher’ will be playing the LFF and I’m thrilled to be attending. I suspect Britons will have a special relationship with this film,” added director Bennett Miller.
