Keira Knightley, Nicole Kidman carry anticipated films to Rome Film Fest

By Sean O’Connell Shortly after closing the Toronto International Film Festival, Massy Tadjedin’s romantic drama “Last Night” will head overseas to open the international Rome Film Festival.

Organizers announced that the film, which stars Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington and Eva Mendes, will launch this year’s event on Oct. 28. It centers around a married couple wrestling with infidelity. The husband takes a business trip with a colleague to whom he’s attracted. While he’s resisting temptation, his wife encounters her past love.

“Night” wasn’t the only film attached to the Roman festival, which runs through Nov. 5.

John Cameron Mitchell’s “Rabbit Hole,” starring Nicole Kidman, Dianne Wiest and Aaron Eckhart, also will play Rome (after bowing at TIFF). That movie also deals with a couple in crisis – I sense a theme.

Later in the fest, Akira Kurosawa will be honored with the screening of a restored version of his masterpiece, “Rashomon.”
