‘I Saw the Light’ to close Vancouver Film Festival

Tom’s ‘I Saw The Light’ is premiering during the 34th Vancouver Film Festival! Saoirse Ronan‘s ‘Brooklyn’ is set to open the festival, while ‘I Saw The Light’ closes it. The event runs from September 24 to October 9.

John Crowley’s Brooklyn, which stars Saoirse Ronan and Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor Domhnall Gleeson, is to open the Vancouver Film Festival, organizers said on Tuesday. Fox Searchlight Pictures paid $9 million at Sundance for the distribution rights to Brooklyn, the romantic drama based on Colm Toibin’s novel of the same name and adapted for the big screen by Nick Hornby.

The west coast Canadian festival, to run from Sept. 24 to Oct. 9, will close with Sony Pictures Classics’ I Saw the Light, the story of the legendary country music singer Hank Williams by writer-director Marc Abraham and starring Tom Hiddleston.
