69th Venice Film Festival – Selena Gomez, James Franco and Bellocchio’s cast on the red carpet
Some define it as “THE” film of this 69th Film Festival, some acclaimed it, and others booed it. What is certain is that “Spring Breakers” by Harmony Korine, presented in competition, didn’t go unnoticed. Excellent performance by James Franco as a crazy drug and arms dealer who releases the four protagonists from jails, the teen idols Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine. The second Italian film in competition is “Bella Addormentata” by Marco Bellocchio welcomed with a standing ovation at the press conference. The film deals with a very delicate subject related to Eluana Englaro, whose story becomes the occasion to tell life stories. In the cast Maya Sansa, Toni Servillo, Alba Rohrwacher, Isabelle Huppert, Gianmarco Tognazzi, Michele Riondino and Roberto Herlitzka.
