About the Film

Role: (Unconfirmed, but we believe Stone plays) a college student who enters a romantic relationship with her philosophy professor (Joaquin Phoenix)

U.S. Distributor: Sony Pictures Classics
U.S. Release Date: July 24, 2015
Festivals:

  • Cannes Film Festival (2015) – Special Screening (Out of Competition)

Why? This film should be a hit for Woody Allen, unless this film somehow upsets his hit-miss pattern. As Allen’s temporary muse, Stone might have a showcase performance here.

Why not? Even if the film lands, it could all about Joaquin Phoenix’s professor character, or maybe it’s just another nomination for original screenplay for Allen. Voters might be torn between Stone’s work here and her performance in Cameron Crowe’s upcoming film.

Notes

Ranking: No. 2 as of DATE
