Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies” will close the 2015 Hamptons International Film Festival, which also has added movies to its slate that include buzzy titles “Room,” “Anomalisa,” “Brooklyn,” “Suffragette” and  “Experimenter,” among others.

Meanwhile, the festival’s series of public conversations will feature Emily Blunt, already set to be honored at the festival; Michael Moore, whose “Where to Invade Next” is part of the fest’s lineup, and Dan Rather, who is the subject of the festival’s opening night film, “Truth.”
