Deauville offers first look at buzz titles

Festival gaining reputation as place for premieres

Deauville’s growing reputation as a first-stop film festival is particularly evident this year with world premieres for Dagur Kari’s “The Good Heart” and Miguel Arteta’s “Youth in Revolt.” There are also European premieres for Daniel Davila’s “Harrison, Montgomery,” Jonathan Liebesman’s “The Killing Room,” Jon Gunn’s “Like Dandelion Dust,” Raymond De Fellita’s “City Island” and Bobcat Goldthwait’s competition entry “World’s Greatest Dad.”

Several bigger-budget American films will also be screening, such as Nora Ephron’s “Julie and Julia” (with star Meryl Streep in attendance), Ang Lee’s Cannes competition entry “Taking Woodstock,” Anne Fletcher’s “The Proposal” and Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s “Gamer.”

A seven-strong documentary lineup (called Uncle Sam’s Docs) includes European premieres for Andrew Monument’s “Nightmares in Red, White and Blue: The Evolution of the American Horror Film” and Tom DiCillo’s Doors docu “When You’re Strange.”

French producer Luc Besson will be on hand for dolphin docu “The Cove,” which he has agreed to distribute in France.

For the third consecutive year, Deauville will screen films 24 hours a day each day during the entire 10-day festival. No panels, but there will be a retrospective of Robert Aldrich films, including screenings of “Vera Cruz” and “The Big Knife.”
