Lust Caution
The Corona Cork Film Festival will open on October 14th with the Coen Brother feature ‘No Country For Old Men’, an adaptation of American author Cormac McCarthy’s novel of the same title, and will close with Ang Lee’s latest ‘Lust, Caution’ on the 21st.

‘No Country For Old Men’ features a star studded cast including Academy Award Winner Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black, Double Jeopardy); Academy Award Nominees Josh Brolin (Hollow Man, The Dead Girl) and Javier Bardem (Collateral); Woody Harrelson (Edtv, Anger Management) and Kelly McDonald (Intermission, Gosford Park)

The film tells the story of Llewelyn Moss (Brolin) who stumbles across a pick-up truck surrounded by a sentry of dead men, with a heroin stash and two million dollars in cash still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a series of catastrophic violence that not even the law in person of the aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell (Jones) can stop. The film will be screened in the Cork Opera House at 8.30pm on Sunday October 14th.

The Festival will close with the screening of Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee’s latest offering ‘Lust, Caution’, which won the Golden Lion Award at the 2007 Venice Film Festival.

Lee’s previous credits include the Oscar winning film ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’. ‘Lust, Caution’ is based on the short story by Chinese author Eileen Chang, and stars Asian cinema icon Tony Leung opposite screen newcomer Tang Wei. The film is an espionage thriller set in WW11-era Shanghai, in which a young woman, Wang Jiazhi (Tang Wei) gets swept up in a dangerous game of emotional intrigue with a powerful political figure, Mr. Yee (Leung). The film will be screened in the Cork Opera House at 8.30pm on Sunday October 21st.

Mick Hannigan Festival Director of the Corona Cork Film Festival said:

“This is one of the strongest pairings of opening and closing films the festival has had in years. Both are immensely satisfying on every level, and sure to delight audiences. To be able to see films of this calibre, in advance even of their US release is a wonderful opportunity for Cork audiences”

Tickets for all screenings can be purchased in the Festival Box Office which is located in 56 Patrick’s Street (021 4272263) or online on the festival website at www.corkfilmfest.org. Tickets for all screenings go on sale at 10am on Saturday October 6.
