Reilly, Julia Roberts, Juliette Binoche, Kelly Macdonald, Lucas Hedges, Mary Kay Place, Melanie Lynskey, Michael Shannon, Montgomery Clift, Penelope Cruz, Ricardo Darin, and Rupert Graves.

Many of the international films presented have also been selected as their countries top film of the year and likely to be their pick to be submitted to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film. Independent American films are also well-represented including Marc Turtletaub’s quiet masterpiece, Puzzle, and Seattle filmmaker Megan Griffiths, Sadie.
