'In the Cut' will open London Film Festival

"In the Cut," a thriller about a serial killer in Manhattan starring Meg Ryan and directed by Oscar-winner Jane Campion, will open the London Film Festival on Oct. 22.

Organizers said Wednesday that another film by a female director from New Zealand — "Sylvia," starring Gwyneth Paltrow as doomed poet Sylvia Plath and directed by Christine Jeffs — will be the closing night film on Nov. 6.

Both films are due for a commercial release in the United States next month.
