The Brave One

The Brave One by Neil Jordan will be part of the Special Presentations program.

New York radio host Erica Bain has a life that she loves and a fiancé she adores - and it all is taken away when a brutal attack leaves Erica badly wounded and her fiancé dead. Unable to move past the tragedy, Erica begins prowling the city streets at night to track down the men she holds responsible. Her dark pursuit of justice catches the public's attention, and New York is riveted by her anonymous exploits. But with the NYPD desperate to find the culprit and a dogged police detective hot on her trail, she must decide whether her quest for revenge is truly the right path, or if she is indeed becoming the very thing she is trying to stop.

This is a mainstream movie that will be released during the festival on September 14. It stars Jodie Foster and Terrance Howard and is directed by Jordan (Crying Game, Interview with a Vampire, The Good Thief), so it should be solid. But if it conflicts with something else, I'll pass b/c I know I'll be able to see it when I get home.
