Fernando Meirelles' Film 360 To Open BFI London Film Festival 2011

Meirelles adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's erotic play 360 stars Jude Law, Rachel Weisz, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Foster.

It's just been announced that Fernando Meirelles' much anticipated adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's erotic drama play 360 will screen opening night at this year's BFI London Film Festival that runs October 12-27th. This would be the European Premiere of the film that stars Rachel Weisz, Jude Law, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Ben Foster and has been scripted for the screen by Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon). Meirelles is no stranger to the festival having opened his 2005 film The Constant Gardener here. His other two films were the Brazilian classic City of God and the 2008 horror Blindness. From the press release;
360 is a modern and stylish kaleidoscope of interconnected love and relationships linking characters from different cities and countries in a vivid, suspenseful and deeply moving tale of romantic life in the 21st century. Starting in Vienna, the film beautifully weaves through Paris, London, Bratislava, Rio, Denver and Phoenix into a single, mesmerising narrative. From a simple decision made by one man €“ to remain faithful to his wife €“ springs a series of consequences. From uplifting, beautiful and romantic moments through to desperate, confused and conflicted interludes, each protagonist in 360 has their own vivid, entertaining, funny, tragic narrative as their stories entwine across the globe.
360 will make it's Worldwide Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.
