Salma Hayek, Jim Sheridan, Mexico Unite Against Trump at Guadalajara

12 March 2017 5:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It has also issued a pre-solicitation notice for contractors to build a U.S-Mexico border wall.

So some kind of reference to Trump at Friday’s opening night ceremony was expected. Multiple movies at Guadalajara tackle exclusion, whether via racism (“Bad Influence,”), hickdom (“The Distinguished Citizen”), misogyny (“Los Crimenes del Mar del Norte,” “The Animal’s Wife”) or language (“I Dream in Another Language,” “Future Perfect”).

Lion is up against some big threats in the best picture category at the 2017 Oscars, but The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg — this site’s namesake — lists it as a frontrunner. Other films in contention include La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Hell or High Water, Hacksaw Ridge, Fences, Hidden Figures, Arrival, and Sully. If nominated, Lion — directed by Garth Davis and features the likes of Dev Patel and »
