J'accuse: #MeToo storm swirls as Polanski premiers Dreyfus Affair film

Brad Pitt in Ad Astra

Among the other potential Oscar hopefuls at the festival, U.S. director Steven Soderbergh's take on the Panama Papers investigation, "The Laundromat", is set to premier, while Brad Pitt plays an astronaut in James Gray's highly anticipated sci-fi drama "Ad Astra". With that said, many think that the figure and how it's position might have something to do with Jolie and their relationship.

Roman Polanski is returning to the worldwide film circuit this week with the world premiere of his Dreyfus Affair drama "An Officer and a Spy" in competition at the 2019 Venice Film Festival.

"The story is so delicate and we knew that any clips, voiceover could tip the film over, make it too obvious, so it was a constant effort to try to maintain a balance and keep this story unfolding in a very subtle and delicate way", he said.

Polanski's historical thriller about the persecution of the French Jewish army officer Alfred Dreyfus, "An Officer and a Spy", is due to premier Friday.

Pitt had earlier stopped to sign autographs and take selfies with dozens of fans crowded near the water.

Yesterday marked the start of the 76th edition of the Venice Film Festival, the annual event where talents flock to the water-filled Italian city to celebrate the next big moments in cinema. I feel like she galvanizes him on his mission.

In addition to starring, Pitt also produced the film which he said was one of the most challenging he's ever done. She imagined festival director "Barbera, wandering the Lido hopelessly, singing the same mournful refrain. he can't find a female film director". "Up there you're still thirsty for human connection", she said.

In his 1977 case, Polanski was accused of drugging a 13-year-old girl before raping her at film star Jack Nicholson's house in Los Angeles.

Polanski fled to France in 1978, convinced a judge was going to scrap his plea deal and send him to prison for decades.

The inclusion in a sidebar event of USA director Parker, who was embroiled in a rape trial while still at university, has also sparked criticism.

In the interview, contained in a press pack released to accompany his film, the director was asked by Bruckner if "as a Jew" he will "survive the present-day neofeminist McCarthyism".

"Venice.is the place where I was born (made) as a director".

With Polanski suing the Academy of Motion Pictures for stripping him of his membership, Screen Daily's chief critic Fionnuala Halligan was withering about his selection.
