Wild Bunch is selling “Racer and the Jailbird” internationally. Neon, which pre-bought the film, will release it later this year in the U.S.

The following programmers note was released:

The only threat to the romance between thief Gino (Matthias Schoenaerts) and race car driver Bénédicte is the lure of his next heist, in this latest crime-thriller from Belgian director Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead, The Drop).

Reuniting with the exceptionally talented Matthias Schoenaerts, Belgian director Michaël R. Roskam returns to the criminal underbelly with Racer and the Jailbird. But in a departure from the small-time crooks of Bullhead and The Drop (TIFF 2014), his latest feature operates in a world of higher stakes and more refined tastes.

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.
