Fernando Meirelles’ ‘360’ to open London Film fest

- Associated Press - Wednesday, August 24, 2011

LONDON (AP) - London Film Festival organizers say this year's event will open with the European premiere of Fernando Meirelles' "360," starring Rachel Weisz, Jude Law and Anthony Hopkins.

The film is a series of interlinked love stories set in cities including London, Vienna and Denver and inspired by Arthur Schnitzler's play "La Ronde."

Brazilian director Meirelles is best known for "City of God" and "The Constant Gardener," which opened the London festival in 2005.

His latest, written by Peter Morgan ("Frost/Nixon"), gets its world premiere at September's Toronto film festival.

London festival artistic director Sandra Hebron said Wednesday that "360" had "a modern and moving narrative, helped by strong performances."

The festival runs Oct. 12-27.
