"We fell in love with Joel Coen's adaptation of Shakespeare's Scottish Play,'' Tuttle said. "Poised in a magical space between theatre and cinema, this is a stunning production... So many of us missed the big screen experience last year, and this (is) a perfect celebration of this art form that's built on ancient traditions of storytelling but with truly magical powers to convey intimacy and awesome scale and spectacle. It's such a privilege to be closing the LFF with a film of this extraordinary caliber and welcoming Joel Coen and his collaborators to the festival." Joel has previously co-directed films with his brother Ethan. This is the first time that he has worked on a film on his own. Together with the Coen Brothers, as they are known, have made classics such as ''Fargo'', ''The Big Lebowski'', ''No Country for Old Men'', ''True Grit'', ''Inside Llewyn Davis'' and ''The Ballad of Buster Scruggs''. The festival had previously announced Jeymes Samuel's ''The Harder They Fall'', starring Jonathan Majors, Zazie Beetz, Delroy Lindo, LaKeith Stanfield, Danielle Deadwyler, Edi Gathegi, R.J. Cyler, Damon Wayans Jr., and Deon Cole with Regina King and Idris Elba, as the opening night film.
