Deadline is reporting that “Our Souls At Night” will have it’s world premiere during the Venice Film Festival. Matthias’ co-stars Jane Fonda and Robert Redford will receive Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement awards.
Jane Fonda and Robert Redford have each been awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement by the Venice International Film Festival and the duo’s upcoming pic Our Souls At Night, a Netflix original film, will world premiere at the 74th edition of the fest in an out-of-competition slot.
Our Souls At Night, which is directed by Ritesh Batra and produced by Redford’s Wildwood Enterprises, will screen on September 1 in the Palazzo del Cinema and a ceremony to award the film’s stars Fonda and Redford will take place just before the screening.
The film marks the first time Fonda and Redford have appeared on screen together since they both starred in 1979’s The Electric Horseman. Based on the novel by Kent Haruf and adapted for screen by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, Our Souls At Night is set in Colorado and begins when Addie Moore (Fonda) pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor Louis Waters (Redford). Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town, they’d been neighbors for decades but had little contact. Netflix is launching the film globally next year.
