Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is pleased to announce this year’s Opening and Closing Films. Florence Foster Jenkins, directed by Stephen Frears, and starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, will open the festival on October 25, and Satoshi: A Move for Tomorrow, directed by Yoshitaka Mori and starring Kenichi Matsuyama and Masahiro Higashide, will close the festival on November 3.

Florence Foster Jenkins is a warm-hearted drama about the real-life heiress who devoted herself to supporting musical society in New York, and dreamed of being a singer herself despite being unspeakably bad.

Satoshi: A Move for Tomorrow is also biographical, focusing on the life of shogi (Japanese chess) master Satoshi Murayama, who dedicated himself to the game even as he battled the disease that would cut him down in his prime.
