The Kindness of Strangers kicked the Berlinale in style

We were in time for the Berlinale opening, tuxedo, black tie and a smile on the way out. The film takes us to New York City for a modern tale of ordinary people struggling to find help, hope and love.

Lone Scherfig, the director, had menntionned in the conference earlier today: “...I thought it would make sense…to make a film that had light and hopefully leaves the audience with a sense of not just hope, but also community...” she said" 

the film stars Zoe Kazan (Clara), Andrea Riseborough (Alice), Tahar Rahim (Marc), Caleb Landry Jones (Jeff), Jay Baruchel (John Peter), Bill Nighy (Timofey).
