Edward Zwick's "Love & Other Drugs" will open the 2010 AFI Fest in Los Angeles November 4th, while Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan" will close out the event November 11th, organizers said Thursday. The fest takes place in Hollywood at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the Mann Chinese 6 theatres, the Egyptian Theatre and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
"These two films are a perfect pair to open and close AFI FEST because they tell extraordinary stories from unique and very personal points of view," commented festival director Jacqueline Lyanga in a statement. "We are proud to offer them as the frame to a program of cinema that embraces both mainstream and experimental voices and seeks to engage the audience in the discourse around the year's most significant new films."
