BFI London selects Meirelles’ “360” as opener – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Fernando Meirelles’ latest film “360” will open the 55tht BFI London Film Festival, it was revealed this morning.

The film will have its European premiere in London after screening at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Working from a screenplay by Oscar nominee Peter Morgan (“The Queen,” “Hereafter”), the film stars Rachel Weisz, Jude Law and Sir Anthony Hopkins in what the studio calls “a modern and stylish kaleidoscope of interconnected love and relationships linking characters from different cities and countries in a vivid, suspenseful and moving tale of contemporary romantic life.” Vague, I agree, but the plot reportedly bounces through Vienna, Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix as it connects its characters into a single narrative.

“The BFI London Film Festival is one of the best festivals in the world due to its selection of films and the number of theatres the films are shown in,” Meirelles said. “I am very honored ‘360,’ an intimate film that talks about our options in life, has been chosen to open the festival this year, and I want to thank Sandra Hebron for extending this prestigious invitation to me for a second time, following ‘The Constant Gardener,’ which opened the festival in 2005.”

Now we’ll wait to see if the director has recaptured some of the passion of “Gardener” or even “City of God,” because it was missing from his 2008 effort “Blindness.” I intend on catching “360” at TIFF, and will cover as much as I can as we work our way through the awards season.
