Who said, “Nothing prepared me for being this awesome. It’s kind of a shock.” And this: “The only way we’ll ever know what it’s like to be you is if you work your best at being you as often as you can, and keep reminding yourself that’s where home is.” You guessed it—that master of deadpan comedy and ironic introspection, Bill Murray. He’s the recipient of this year’s Rome Film Fest’s Lifetime Achievement Award, which will be presented to him by his frequent collaborator Wes Anderson. Also making an appearance at the festival’s 14th edition is Ron Howard’s documentary, Pavarotti, and—because he seems to be everywhere this year—Bret Easton Ellis. —J.V.
