A Thousand Times Good Night
How much does autobiography help or hinder a film's effectiveness? Norwegian director Erik Poppe's first English-language film, which played at the Marrakech Film Festival as part of the tribute evening honoring its star, Juliette Binoche, is avowedly based on incidents, and professional and personal quandaries the director himself experienced with one crucial change: Poppe switched the lead roles around so that it is Binoche who is his proxy, and Kingslayer Nikolaj Coster-Waldau playing the character based on Poppe's wife. That change is crucial to the final film and as it wears on, begins to look like maybe the best narrative decision that could have been made.

Commercial and music video director Ace Norton will be making his feature length directorial debut.

Take that Bono! It looks like the drummer of U2 is finally gonna get some of the spotlight shone on him instead of one the Mr-Save-The-Planet-I-Invested-In-Blackberry-Started-My-Own-Clothing-Line-And-Charitable-Organization-Which-Gives-Seems-Not-To-Do-Anything-Charitable frontman for the popular rock group.
