Scottsdale International Film Festival 2014: Opening and Closing Movies Announced
Catch Reese Witherspoon in this closing night drama at the SIFF.
Film buffs, clear your schedules. The 14th annual Scottsdale International Film Festival is set for Thursday, October 9, through Monday, October 13, and the festival's organizers just announced which films will open and close the five-day film event. If you're a fan of Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallee, William H. Macy, or Reese Witherspoon, you'll definitely want to check out what the 2014 fest has in store.
Kicking off this year's SIFF on October 9, William H. Macy (of Fargo and, more recently, Shameless fame) directs and acts in a music-filled fim surrounding the loss of a son in his film called Rudderless. Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin, Selena Gomez, and Laurence Fishburne are also featured in the movie. The film will screen at 7:30 p.m. as a part of the festival's opening night reception at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
For a more dramatic end, Jean-Marc Vallee's Wild will be closing the film festival on October 13 at 8:25 p.m. The biopic is based on the true tale of one woman's 1000-mile hike along the West coast. Played by Reese Witherspoon, the movie follows Cheryl Strayed's journey from heroin addiction and heartbreak to self realization. Audiences will get an early look at the film, which isn't slotted for full release until December.
