EDIT: Paul Thomas Anderson will be present!
JPC is UK/Australian so we have been waiting patiently (mostly!) for November for our turn to see our master in The Master…… Well Aussie fans can see it a couple of weeks earlier as the film is set to open the Cockatoo Island Film Festival in Sydney Harbour on October 24th. How about that? Have a look at the evening programme because that will be some night!
Paul Thomas Anderson’s follow-up to There Will Be Blood, which stars Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, has earned strong reviews and sparked discussion about parallels with the life of L. Ron Hubbard, creator of Scientology, since debuting at the Venice and Toronto film festivals in recent weeks.
It will screen on opening night in two of the five cinemas being installed at a cost of more than $800,000 on the harbour’s biggest island for a festival that organisers hope will attract more than 40,000 people from October 24 to 28.
