Hamptons Film Festival Adds ‘Spotlight,’ ‘Carol’

The Hamptons International Film Festival has added “Spotlight” and “Carol” to its 2015 lineup as centerpiece screenings, giving a New York-area showcase to two titles that have gained significant industry buzz since bowing at Venice and Cannes, respectively.

The HIFF centerpiece screening on Saturday, “Spotlight” centers on the Boston Globe reporters who revealed the ongoing cover-up of sexual abuse by the city’s Catholic Church. Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber and Broadway regular Brian d’Arcy James star in Tom Mcarthy’s film, set for release by Open Roads Films Nov. 6.

The Sunday centerpiece, “Carol,” stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in an adaptation of a Patricia Highsmith novel about an affair between two women in 1950s New York. The Weinstein Company will release the Todd Haynes films Nov. 20.

The two movies join a lineup of films that already includes opener “Truth” as well as a slate of competition titles. The festival also recently announced it would honor Emily Blunt (“Sicario”), Killer Films, Albert Maysles and HIFF chairman Stuart Match Suna.

“Spotlight” will screen Oct. 10, with “Carol” following on Oct. 11. The 23rd annual Hamptons International Festival runs five days, Oct. 8-12, in a handful of venues across Long Island.
