The 40th anniversary edition of the Telluride Film Festival unveiled its lineup, as per custom, just days in advance of its presentation in the mountains of Colorado. The five-day event begins tomorrow and will include several movies with Oscar ambitions, including the world premiere of Jason Reitman’s Labor Day, starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin.
The Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis (pictured above), Alexander Payne’s Nebraska, the Robert Redford movie All is Lost, and the erotic French film Blue is the Warmest Color, all of which premiered at Cannes in May, will make their American debuts at Telluride. In addition, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity and Errol’s Morris’ documentary on Donald Rumsfeld, The Unknown Known, will play at Telluride before their screenings at the Toronto Film Festival next week.
Telluride will likely add a surprise sneak preview or two before it wraps up on Monday. Last year, Ben Affleck unveiled Argo unannounced at the festival, winning raves that ultimately led to Oscar gold.
