Bonneville, which will debut in a gala slot Monday at the Toronto International Film Festival, is one of the hot titles vying for buyers' attention. The road movie, which stars Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Joan Allen, is targeting older female moviegoers, a niche that has seen success with such recent movies as Something's Gotta Give, The Banger Sisters, Ladies in Lavender and The Boynton Beach Bereavement Club. Bonneville is one of six films that Cinetic's John Sloss, who sold The Station Agent and The Fog of War, is handling at the festival. "I'm a little concerned over the hype," he said. "It delivers to its target audience of mature women. Distributors are getting smart and realize that a movie can work with this demo with the right cast and high concept." »

Oscar winner Jessica Lange was taken by surprise when she was honored by New York City's Film Society Of Lincoln Center on Monday night, when her celebrity pals took to the stage to talk about her short-comings. The Tootsie actress was paid the tribute by the renowned cinematic body in recognition of her contribution to film and television. Misery actress Kathy Bates took the stage with Joan Allen to make fun of Lange's perceived lack of a sense of humor, with Allen saying, "Remember that time in the make-up room (on Bonneville) when she told us not to buy from Exxon because their profits were too high. She's a laugh riot!" Scottish actor Alan Cumming recalled starring naked alongside Lange, who turns 57 tomorrow, in Titus. He said to her, "I don't know what you're talking about Jessica, but you've got fantastic tits." To which she replied, "Please, if your hand weren't there that thing would be halfway round my back." »
