Filmdistributeur The Searchers heeft zeven nieuwe films van gerenommeerde regisseurs aangekocht op het recente filmfestival van Cannes (17 t/m 28 mei 2017). Met onder andere de western The Sisters Brothers van Jacques Audiard, het drama Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot van Gus Van Sant, het ontroerende Beautiful Boy van Felix van Groeningen en het komisch drama The Widow van Neil Jordan bevestigt The Searchers opnieuw haar naam als distributeur van hedendaagse cinema en kwalitatief entertainment.

The Sisters Brothers

Script: Jacques Audiard, Thomas Bidegain, gebaseerd op de roman van Patrick Dewitt
Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed, Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly

Based on Patrick DeWitt’s novel, The Sisters Brothers revolves around the colourfully named gold prospector Hermann Kermit Warm, who’s being pursued across 1000 miles of 1850s Oregon desert to San Francisco by the notorious assassins Eli and Charlie Sisters. Except Eli is having a personal crisis and beginning to doubt the longevity of his chosen career. And Hermann might have a better offer.

Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot
Genre: biografie / drama
Regie: Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk, Elephant)
Script: John Callahan, Gus Van Sant
Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara

John Callahan has a lust for life, a talent for off-color jokes, and a drinking problem. When an all-night bender ends in a catastrophic car accident, Callahan wakes up to the reality of being confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. In his journey back from rock bottom, Callahan’s wicked sense of humor and honesty turns out to be his saving grace, as he makes friends with an oddball AA group, finds that love is not beyond his reach, and a talent for drawing irreverent and sometimes shocking cartoons.

De helaasheid der dingen, Belgica
)
Script: Luke Davies, Felix van Groeningen

Script: Sebastián Lelio
Cast: Julianne Moore

A free-spirited woman in her 50s seeks out love at L.A. dance clubs. Lelio himself is writing and directing the movie, which won’t be a straight redo of Gloria, but spin a new story about a middle-aged woman finding a second wind of joie de vivre. Pablo Larraín (Jackie, No) is aboard to produce.
