Cannes hits highlight New York Film Fest lineup

NEW YORK (AP) — This year’s New York Film Festival will draw heavily from the Cannes (CAHN’) Film Festival.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced the festival lineup Monday. Many films that premiered in May at Cannes will fill the festival’s slate, including Alexander Payne’s Midwest road trip “Nebraska,” the Coen brothers’ folk revival “Inside Llewyn Davis,” James Gray’s period drama “The Immigrant” and Jim Jarmusch’s vampire tale “Only Lovers Left Alive.”

The Film Society announced earlier that Paul Greengrass’ “Captain Phillips” would be the festival opener, Ben Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” the centerpiece and Spike Jonze’s “Her” the festival closer.

Other notables include Frederick Wiseman’s “At Berkeley” documentary and the big screen debut of Steve Coogan’s “Alan Partridge.”

The festival runs Sept. 27 through Oct. 13.
