Our Souls at Night
September 1 | 22:15 Sala Grande | Out Of Competition
Kent Haruf’s work has always had a special place in my heart for its honesty and specificity. I was honored to adapt his last novel to the screen, and to collaborate with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda to tell this story of ordinary people so intensely specific and local, and that’s what makes it universal. We cast extensively locally, and the story gave us a chance to explore the specificities of Eastern Colorado—the landscape that drives these two characters together, the things they like to hear on the radio, and the timeless notion of pretend families. Working with the actors and the land to tell Haruf’s story of this cycle of love and loss that is life, just made me more certain that stuff of great literature exists nowhere else but in our everyday lives, as it always has.
Le fidèle/Racer And The Jailbird

There’s no age restriction to falling in love. Jane Fonda and Robert Redford reunite for Our Souls At Night, a Netflix Film.
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.
Netflix has announced the cast of “Our Souls at Night” and Matthias has joined the cast. Entertainment Weekly is reporting the following story:
Netflix has announced that principal photography will kick off on Monday on Our Souls at Night, the adaptation of Kent Haruf’s novel. Jane Fonda and Robert Redford will star as Addie Moore and Louis Waters, a widow and widower who’ve lived next to each other for years. The pair have almost no relationship, but that all changes when Addie tries to make a connection with her neighbor.
Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox) is directing from a script by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, and Our Souls at Night also stars Bruce Dern, Judy Greer, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Iain Armitage.
“I’m looking forward to teaming up with Jane and working with the talented Ritesh Batra,” Redford said in a statement. “Our Souls at Night is an endearing story and I’m happy we get to share it with a broader audience.”
Production will start Monday in Colorado, where the novel is set, and Our Souls at Night will premiere on Netflix in 2017.
