Nepotism Chocolates

user
I’ve been having loads of google news alerts flooding into my inbox over the past few days with regard to QT denying ‘nepotism’ charges (or in other words that he didn’t award the top prize to Sophia Coppola because they used to date). To be honest, this is all that is happening with this conspiracy; QT is denying it and no-one else involved with the jury or connected with the Venice Film Festival has commented on it. To be honest it s getting slightly boring now – it wi...

The film is currently  in theatrical release in North America via specialty distributor IFC Films. To view the trailer, log on to: http://pro.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi4120...

Toronto Film Festival Moves Downtown
