This will be followed by an expansion on Dec. 14 and another wide break on Dec. 21, playing into Christmas and New Year’s. The platform is a similar plan that NEON/30WEST took with their TIFF acquisition last year I, Tonya which earned three Oscar nominations best actress Margot Robbie, film editing, and best supporting actress Allison Janney, the latter winning, and a domestic box office haul of $30M.
Portman has been getting buzz in her supporting actress role out of TIFF as she plays a tortured pop music idol who built her success on a tragic past. Portman won a best actress Oscar for Black Swan in 2011 and in total counts three noms including 2017’s Jackie (best actress) and 2005’s Closer (best supporting). Law has been nominated twice before at the Oscars for Cold Mountain in 2004 (best actor) and The Talented Mr. Ripley in 2000 (best supporting). Raffey Cassidy does double time in the film as the younger version of Portman’s character as well as her daughter while Stacy Martin plays the sister to Portman’s Celeste. Christopher Abbott and Jennifer Ehle also star.
