'Adam' moves to meet Oscar


Paul Schrader's "Adam Resurrected" is throwing its hat into the Oscar ring.

Producer Ehud Bleiberg said Wednesday that he is planning to book an Oscar-qualifying run for the film in December in New York and Los Angeles so it can meet the requirements for awards consideration.

Written by Noah Stollman and based on the novel by Yoram Kaniuk, "Adam" stars Jeff Goldblum as a former Berlin magician who is a patient at a remote Israeli rehabilitation facility for Holocaust survivors. The film also stars Willem Dafoe and Derek Jacobi.

"Adam" also will be seen at the 2008 AFI Fest in Los Angeles, where it will screen Nov. 8-9. (partialdiff)
