'Blessed' added to London film fest lineup

Ana Kokkinos' pic won San Sebastian screenplay prize

LONDON -- Ana Kokkinos' "Blessed" is one of the latest additions to this year's Times BFI London Film Festival, organizers said Monday.

Kokkinos' movie won the best screenplay prize at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain, which wrapped last month. The movie stars Frances O'Connor, Miranda Otto, Deborra-Lee Furness and Victoria Haralabidou and takes place over the course of two days in Melbourne, Australia.

Organizers hinted that the addition would be the last to the London event, which runs through Oct. 29. London Film Festival programmer Michael Hayden said: "We are delighted to be able to complete our program for the Times BFI 53rd London Film Festival with this strikingly inventive film."
