Atom Egoyan’s thriller Chloe, which stars Lian Neeson and Julianne Moore, will open this year’s San Sebastian Film Festival.
The festival’s organisers have also announced its remaining official selection titles, which include the world premiere of French director Christophe Honore’s Making Plans For Lena.
Honore returns to San Sebastian following the success of his previous film The Beautiful Person, which was in competition at the festival last year. His latest project stars Chiara Mastroianni as a woman who struggles to cope with two kids, the breakdown of her relationship and a suffocating family.
