Venice To Honor Frances McDormand

Frances McDormand — who used to live above me in my Manhattan apartment building — will be honored with the Persol Tribute to Visionary Talent Award 2014 at the 71st Venice International Film Festival. McDormand will receive the award on September 1, following by a screening of “Olive Kitteridge,” a project that McDormand initiated by optioning the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Elizabeth Strout. The four-part HBO miniseries directed by Lisa Cholodenko also stars Bill Murray.
