dir. Derek Cianfrance – Venice – DreamWorks

With two very strong films under his belt thus far, Derek Cianfrance continues to climb the ranks as one of our most exciting directors working today.  His most polished and sprawling story brings together the talents of recent Oscar winner Alicia Vikander with Michael Fassbender.  Opening in theaters this coming Labor Day weekend, the film may only muster some love for Alexandre Desplat in Score, or perhaps even some for Oscar winner Rachel Weisz for Best Supporting.
