Oscars: Charlize Theron’s “Young Adult” heading to Berlin – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
hollywoodnews.com: Jason Reitman’s successfully killing two birds with one stone.

The Oscar-nominated director revealed that his latest film, “Young Adult,” will screen at the Berlin Film Festival in February. The screening also will serve as the film’s German premiere.

“Young Adult” has been earning its stars awards recognition leading up to the Oscar nominations on Jan. 24. Charlize Theron, who plays a self-centered YA novelist, earned nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the Satellite Awards and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who bestowed the beauty with a Golden Globe nom. Her co-star, Patton Oswalt, also has been collecting nominations for his performance as Matt, a handicapped nerd from Theron’s home town who helps her “connect” to her fading roots.

Diablo Cody, who penned Reitman’s “Young Adult” script, picked up the Hollywood Screenwriter Award at our Hollywood Film Festival in October. Her acceptance speech is below.

In addition to “Young Adult,” the Berlin festival also added to its slate “I, Anna,” the directorial debut of Charlotte Rampling’s son, Barnaby Southcombe. The film noir co-stars Gabriel Byrne, Hayley Atwell and Eddie Marsan.

And Chris Kenneally’s documentary “Side By Side” was put on the schedule. The doc looks at digital cinema, and featured interviews with the lieks of David Fincher, Keanu Reeves, Martin Scorsese and James Cameron.
