New York City native Bennett Miller joins us to discuss his inspiring and critically acclaimed directing career and his latest film, Foxcatcher.
New York City native Bennett Miller joins us to discuss his inspiring and critically acclaimed directing career. His latest film, the riveting Foxcatcher, is screening as the American Express® Gala in this year’s LFF and saw him awarded Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival. The film was also nominated for the Palme d’Or and continues a series of astonishing fiction features, which began with Miller directing schoolmate Philip Seymour Hoffman to an Academy Award® for Best Actor in Capote. It was followed by a brilliant adaptation of Michael Lewis’ Moneyball, starring Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, which proved once again that Miller was a gifted director who could successfully bring an intelligent, articulate script to the screen.
This event will be hosted by Danny Leigh.
