Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, dir. Edgar WrightScott Pilgrim vs. the World, dir. Edgar Wright

gala screenings of the newest well known titles, premiere screenings of films by renowned directors

One of the most eagerly awaited titles in this section is Edgar Wright's film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, never before screened in Poland. Adapted from a six-volume graphic novel saga about Scott Pilgrim, created by the Canadian comic book artist and writer Bryan Lee O'Malley, the movie was one of the biggest popular culture phenomena of the past decade in the USA. The film is a truly explosive mixture, a piece teeming with references to popular culture, whose extraordinary pace is additionally emphasized by the excellent soundtrack (written especially for the movie by the likes of Beck, Broken Social Scene or Nigel Godrich, Radiohead's producer) and by the editing which often imitates the layout of a comic book page.

The Highlights section will also include Nicole Holofcener's Please Give. This is a feminine rendition of a psychological drama set in New York, starring Catherine Keener and Rebecca Hall., whose plot is a pretext for the creation of complex portraits of women. The director uses her camera as if it were an X-ray machine to show the characters in her usual brilliant manner. The protagonists are depicted as full of contradictions, naked and unsettled, wondering what this exposure of their mysterious inner world will lead to.
