The Los Angeles Film Festival has selected Pedro Almodovar’s “I’m So Excited!” as its opening night film on June 13.

Screening will be the North American premiere for the comedy, set almost entirely on an airplane. Sony Classics is opening “I’m So Excited” on June 28.

The Los Angeles Film Festival will screen more than 200 feature films, shorts, and music videos, representing more than 30 countries, and conclude June 23.
