Kudos for Coppola

Hopper, Lange and Hoskins add star power to an event that will see director Francis Ford Coppola receive a fest Special 50th Anniversary Award Sept. 21.

Lange’s perfs in “King Kong,” “Postman,” and “All That Jazz,” “alone earn Jessica Lange a place in the mythology of the last third of the 20th century,” said a San Sebastian press release. “But this smart actress has cleverly adapted her career to suit herself without accepting the impositions of the industry.”

Hopper will be honored, among other reasons, for playing one of the “Mythical figures concentrating the desires, frustrations, hopes and failures of a generation who can see themselves reflected in them,” the release said.

Hoskins occupies “a privileged place in British and American cinema ever since ‘Mona Lisa,’ ” it added.
