Organizers of the 2015 Hamptons International Film Festival have announced that Paolo Sorrentino’s “Youth” will be the Southampton opening-night film, screening Oct. 9.

The festival, which opens its main East Hampton slate with Dan Rather backstory “Truth,” also has set the roster for its “Views From Long Island” and “Conflict and Resolution” programming.

“Youth,” starring Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel, follows two friends who take a luxury vacation to a Swiss Alps lodge and ponder retirement. “We are looking forward to kicking off our Southampton screenings with Paolo Sorrentino’s exquisite new film,” said HIFF artistic director David Nugent.  “’Youth’ is an emotionally rich and complex film, and its dynamic cast brings incredible depth to the story.”
