Christina Hendricks: “Ginger and Rosa” announced at New York Film Festival

The New York Film Festival announced its full slate of films on Thursday, a line up of 32 titles that largely serves as a catch-all compendium of standouts from other international festivals like Cannes, Berlin, Venice, and Toronto.

Along with the previously announced opening night film (Ang Lee’s Life of Pi), centerpiece gala (David Chase’s Not Fade Away), and closing night film (Robert Zemeckis’ Flight) — all world premieres — the highlights of the festival include: Hyde Park on Hudson, starring Bill Murray as President Franklin D. Roosevelt; Ginger and Rosa, starring Elle Fanning as a girl growing up in 1962 London with unhappy-if-gorgeous parents (Christina Hendricks and Allesandro Nivola); Passion, Brian De Palma’s heightened noir about an ad exec (Rachel McAdams) and her assistant (Noomi Rapace); and Amour, the winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.

The festival runs from Sept. 28 through Oct. 14 at Lincoln Center.
