The fest also sets special screenings of Jim Jarmusch’s ‘Gimme Danger’ and Terence Davies’ ‘A Quiet Passion.’
Kristen Stewart and Adam Driver will be honored at the New York Film Festival, the Film Society of Lincoln Center announced Tuesday.
The two actors will be lauded during the annual ¡°An Evening With¡¡± events, which include a dinner and conversation with fest director Kent Jones. Driver, who stars in Jim Jarmusch¡¯s Paterson, will be honored on Oct. 2; Stewart, featured in three fest films (Kelly Reichardt¡¯s Certain Women, Olivier Assayas¡¯ Personal Shopper and Ang Lee¡¯s Billy Lynn¡¯s Long Halftime Walk) will be honored on Oct. 5.
Additionally, Alex Horwitz¡¯s documentary Hamilton¡¯s America, which captures the phenomenon of Lin-Manuel Miranda¡¯s Broadway musical, will make its world premiere at the fest, ahead of its PBS Great Performances broadcast on Oct. 21. Lonny Price¡¯s Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened, a nonfiction account of Stephen Sondheim and Harold Prince¡¯s 1981 musical-flop-turned-cult-favorite Merrily We Roll Along, will also debut at the fest. Both will be introduced by the directors and special guests.
Other special events include screenings of Jarmusch¡¯s Stooges doc Gimme Danger and Terence Davies¡¯ A Quiet Passion, which stars Cynthia Nixon as celebrated American poet Emily Dickinson.
The 54th New York Film Festival runs Sept. 30-Oct. 16.
2016 Sessions > Set 011 [+ 5]
You know the actress from her films. The real Kristen Stewart ¡ª funny and fiercely open ¡ª is only just emerging. That took years of work.
It¡¯s hard to not be charmed by Kristen Stewart¡¯s Los Feliz home, even harder to believe that it belongs to a movie star and not a college freshman. The basement den of her four-bedroom property, which hovers above Los Angeles ¡ª at once belonging to and separate from the hazy city below it ¡ª is a study in random: a stop sign on one wall, three metal letters ¡ª A, S and S ¡ª on another, a Batman action figure, a Winnie the Pooh-themed Pez dispenser, a Playboy pinball machine. The room¡¯s centerpiece, an imposing bookcase, is packed with fashion tomes, a few to do with Chanel, for whom she models; monographs featuring the work of Basquiat, Eggleston and Mapplethorpe; books about food, travel and the Beatles; and novels by Dostoyevsky, Hesse and Kafka. A chunk of shelf is devoted to Jack Kerouac, whose character Marylou she played in a film version of ¡°On the Road.¡±
The more mainstream chapters of Stewart¡¯s career are tucked into corners. Four volumes of the ¡°Twilight¡± series ¡ª the vampire best-seller-turned-blockbuster-movie-franchise that, beginning in 2008, made Stewart arguably the most popular actress on the planet ¡ª sit near the terracotta floor, obscured by a pair of vintage wind-up toys. The shield she wore in ¡°Snow White and the Huntsman,¡± a movie that came out in 2012, a few months before ¡°Breaking Dawn ¡ª Part 2,¡± the fifth and final chapter of ¡°The Twilight Saga,¡± is jammed into the highest shelf.
The year Stewart turned 22 should have been triumphant. ¡°Breaking Dawn¡± and ¡°Snow White¡± both topped the box office, and Stewart became, according to Forbes, Hollywood¡¯s highest-paid actress. She bought two homes (the other on the beach in Topanga), and she took in her third rescue dog, Cole, found by a friend during a round of disc golf. She also became the face of Florabotanica, a Balenciaga fragrance.
