C’mon C’mon

Mike Mills’s upcoming Telluride world premiere C’mon C’mon starring Joaquin Phoenix, Denis Villeneuve’s imminent Venice world premiere Dune and North American premieres of Cannes selections The French Dispatch by Wes Anderson and Marx Can Wait from Marco Bellochio are among the Spotlight programme at the 59th New York Film Festival (NYFF59) that runs September 24-October 10.

C’mon C’mon from A24 stars Phoenix as a kind-hearted radio journalist who goes on a trip with his nephew. Mills previously played the festival with Beginners and 20th Century Women. Gabbie Hoffman and Woody Norman also star.

NYFF59 will also pay tribute to the centenary of late film programmer and festival co-founder Amos Vogel, who offered the city “films you cannot see elsewhere,” with a special Spotlight sidebar including films from Glauber Rocha, John Huston, and trailblazers of the Czech New Wave.

The NYFF59 Spotlight retrospective will be followed by tributes at repertory cinemas across New York City – Anthology Film Archives, Film Forum, Light Industry, Metrograph, MoMA, and the Museum of the Moving Image – in a first collaboration of its kind.
