Luxembourg Selects ‘Baby(a)lone’ For Foreign-Language Oscar Race

Luxembourg has selected Donato Rotunno’s “Baby(a)lone” to be considered for a foreign-language Oscar nomination.

Adapted from Tullio Forgiarini’s novel “Amok,” Baby(A)lone” takes place in an affluent, contemporary Europe and centers on a girl and a boy who forge a unique partnership which involves violence but is meant to help them find love and hope.

“Baby(a)lone” is co-produced by Luxembourg’s Iris Productions and Belgium’s Iris Film. It premiered at the Luxembourg City Film Festival in March followed by selections at the Stockholm Junior Film Festival in April and the Brussels Film Festival in June.

The movie stars teenage actors Joshua Defays and Charlotte Elsen along with Etienne Halsdorf, Gintare Parulyte and Fabienne Hollwege.

Luxembourg took home its first-ever Oscar in 2014 with Laurent Witz and Alexandre Espigares’ animated short “Mr. Hublot.”

The deadline to submit Oscar foreign-language entries is Oct. 1. The nominations will be announced Jan. 16 and the Academy Awards will take place Feb. 28 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
