Hirokazu Kore-eda's Cannes Palme d'Or winner Shoplifters opens in the U.S. this holiday weekend. The TFF #45 entrant has been a critical smash and has become one of the few films thought to be able to challenge for the foreign language Oscar against Alfonso Cuaron's Roma Pawel Pawlikowki's Cold War.
As you might expect, with its U.S. release, there has been, over the past few days, a glut of news and interviews surrounding the film.
Included in that is this David Ehrlich interview for Indiewire.
Awards Daily also provided the route to a new clip released for the film which is here from YouTube:
Nicole Kidman makes a play for inclusion as Best Actress with her turn as a detective seeking redemption in Karyn Kusama's Destroyer. The film is set to open on Dec. 25th. Annapurna pictures previewed a new clip from the film this week via Indiewire.
The link to that story from Zach Sharf and clip is here.
Destroyer's official trailer is here from YouTube:
