"Mothering Sunday," starring Josh O’Connor of "The Crown" and Australian actor Odessa Young as secret lovers in early 20th century England, will hold its U.S. premiere at the Hamptons International Film Festival next month.
Directed by Eva Husson and also featuring Academy Award winners Colin Firth and Olivia Colman, "Mothering Sunday" will be the festival’s Sunday Centerpiece film on Oct. 10.
Hamptons organizers announced several other additions to this year’s lineup. Among the Oscar hopefuls are "C’mon C’mon," with Joaquin Phoenix as an artist caring for his precocious young nephew; and Wes Anderson’s "The French Dispatch," a collection of stories from a fictional publication (the star-studded cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Bill Murray and Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton). Making their regional premieres are two documentaries, "Introducing, Selma Blair," which follows the actor as she copes with her multiple sclerosis diagnosis; and "Listening to Kenny G," which attempts to explain the smooth-jazzman’s enduring appeal. "The Hand of God," from Oscar winner Paolo Sorrentino (2013's "The Great Beauty"), chronicles a boyhood spent in Naples during the 1980s.
The Hamptons International Film Festival runs Oct. 7-13 as an in-person and virtual event. For more information, go to hamptonsfilmfest.org.
