Coin: Financed by Jim Stern’s Endgame Entertainment. Foreign sales repped by Celluloid Dreams. The Weinstein Co. handled domestic release.
Buzz: Unconventional to say the least, this whimsical take on Bob Dylan’s many alter egos has a healthy support base of fans, but if Academy voters fail to sample the film, it could get lost. Though “There’s” astute helmer, Todd Haynes, has been rewarded with a nom in the past for a much less daring effort (“Far From Heaven”), this pic’s most likely to find support for Acad fave Cate Blanchett.
Kudos: Jury prize and actress trophy (Blanchett) at Venice. Nominated for four Spirit Awards, including picture, and will receive the Spirits’ Robert Altman cast honor.
