‘Carnage’ to open N.Y. Film Fest

Polanski's adaptation stars Foster, Winslet, Waltz, Reilly

“Carnage,” Roman Polanski’s adapation of Yasmina Reza’s 2009 best play Tony winner, will open the New York Film Festival.

The Sony Pictures Classics comedy stars Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly as two bourgeois couples who spend the better part of an evening at each others’ throats.

“We are delighted to kick off the festival with a quintessential New York story featuring superb performances from a quartet of the finest actors working today,” said Rose Kuo, exec director of Film Society of Lincoln Center, which puts on the fest. “The film will certainly provoke the kind of discussions about contemporary issues that guarantee a memorable night.” Fest runs Sept. 30 to Oct. 16.
