The 38th Annual Atlanta Film Festival taking place March 28 to April 6 2014, will open with the feature film “JOE,” starring Nicolas Cage. This film from Roadside Attractions is centered on Nicolas Cage, who plays the titular role of Joe, an ex-con and unlikely role model, who meets a 15-year-old boy (Tye Sheridan) and is faced with the choice of redemption or ruin. “JOE” is directed by David Gordon Green, director/producer of television’s “Eastbound and Down” and cult classic films “Pineapple Express” and “All the Real Girls.”
Closing out this year’s fest is “THE DOUBLE,” a stylish black comedy from Magnolia Pictures. “THE DOUBLE” stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon James, a timid man living an isolated existence in an indifferent world until his exact physical double and opposite personality arrives in the form of new co-worker, James Simon. Directed by cult favorite Richard Ayoade of “Submarine” and television’s “The IT Crowd”, “THE DOUBLE” promises searing wit and seasoned character actors including Mia Wasikowska and Wallace Shawn.
