Blindness will open this year’s Atlantic Film Festival on Thursday, September 11. Directed by Academy Award-nominated Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardener), the screenplay, about an epidemic of instant blindness and quarantine, was adapted from Jose Saramago’s novel by CanCon dreamboat Don McKellar. Let’s cross our fingers for some cast members walking that Oxford Theatre red carpet: Blindness stars the ridiculously awesome Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Danny Glover, Gael Garcia Bernal and Alice Braga.
