20 April 2017 2:24 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Mathieu Amalric & Marion Cotillard in First 'Ismael's Ghosts' Trailer

20 April 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"C'est moi!" Another teaser for the Cannes Film Festival! Kicking off the 70th edition of the festival this May is this film, Ismael's Ghost (or Les fantômes d'Ismaël), from French director Arnaud Desplechin (of My Golden Days). The film stars Mathieu Amalric as a filmmaker named Ismael, who is just about to begin shooting his next feature. However, his long lost former lover suddenly shows up out of nowhere, freaking him out, sending him into a metnal "tailspin". Marion Cotillard plays his former lover, and Charlotte Gainsbourg plays his current lover, who also freaks out. The rest of the cast includes Louis Garrel, Alba Rohrwacher, Hippolyte Girardot, & Samir Guesmi. This looks really good, I'm very curious about it. Here's the first trailer for Arnaud Desplechin's Ismael's Ghost, from DailyMotion (via The Playlist): Ismaël Vuillard makes films. He is in the middle of one about Ivan, an atypical diplomat inspired by his brother. »

Review: ‘Norman’ Showcases Richard Gere In Peak Form

14 April 2017 4:09 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Together, writer/director Joseph Cedar and lead actor Richard Gere craft a singularly memorable character in Norman Oppenheimer, a lonely New York “businessman” with loose connections and an insatiable drive for success. Cedar builds his film Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer as a modern adaptation of the “Court Jew” archetype, in which a Jewish figure befriends a man of power, only to be betrayed in the end.

It’s not really a spoiler if it’s all in the title. There’s to be only sadness at the end of this funny, bittersweet story. Norman sports white Apple headphones hanging from his ears as he makes phone call after phone call, bending the truths of his friendships and influences to whoever will listen. He’s got a nephew (Michael Sheen) who appeases him and a slew of Jewish men who wield power and »

Joseph Cedar for his latest film (his previous two having been Oscar-nominated) has assembled an outstanding cast - Lior Ashkenazi, Harris Yulin, Hank Azaria, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Dan Stevens, Michael Sheen, Steve Buscemi, Josh Charles, and Isaach De Bankolé - to work with Richard Gere in Norman: The Moderate Rise And Tragic Fall Of A New York Fixer.

The Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2017: A Rundown

13 April 2017 1:42 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The 2017 Cannes official selection is a mix of brainy competition auteurs, red-carpet star power, and the rarest breed — a handful of players who could return to North America as Oscar contenders.

Nicole Kidman will be stuffing her trunks with evening gowns, as she will need to walk the Palais steps at least four times: twice with Colin Farrell, for Cannes favorite Sofia Coppola‘s Civil War potboiler “The Beguiled” (Focus Features) and Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” (A24), both in Competition, and again for John Cameron Mitchell‘s midnighter “How to Talk with Girls at Parties” (A24) and a preview of Jane Campion‘s returning Sundance Channel series, “Top of the Lake: China Girl.” How the three films play in Cannes will determine if the Oscar perennial returns for another go-round.

Cannes 2017: our chief critic's guide to the Competition line-up

13 April 2017 8:26 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen’s chief critic and reviews editor Fionnuala Halligan dissects this year’s Competition films.

Welcome to the “huge party” of Cannes 70.  If the Official Selection this year is a “lab”, the formula isn’t quite complete - Thierry Fremaux announced 18 films which will compete for the Palme D’Or today, implying that three have yet to arrive (he also hinted that a glaring absence, that of a film from China for the second consecutive year, may yet be rectified; nothing was said however about the absence of a major Hollywood studio thus far).

Newswire: Netflix, Nicole Kidman, and Twin Peaks top this year’s Cannes lineup

13 April 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The lineup for the 70th Cannes Film Festival was revealed overnight (or earlier today, if you’re in France) and, while it includes some major American movie stars—Nicole Kidman alone has four projects screening at the festival—major American movie studios have been shut out from the big opening-night slot. Instead, the festival will open with French director Arnaud Desplechin’s Ismael’s Ghosts, starring Mathieu Amalric as a filmmaker whose relationship with his current partner (Charlotte Gainsbourg) is thrown into chaos by the return of a former flame (Marion Cotillard) once thought dead.

The competition slate includes a few expected picks, including Sofia Coppola’s languid Civil War-era drama The Beguiled, Todd HaynesWonderstruck with Julianne Moore, Yorgos LanthimosThe Lobster followup The Killing Of A Sacred Deer, Right Now, Wrong Then director Hong Sang-soo’s The Day After, and Michael Haneke’s ironically titled Happy End with »

17 Shocks and Surprises from the 2017 Cannes Lineup, From ‘Twin Peaks’ to Netflix and Vr

13 April 2017 5:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For such a highly anticipated event, the Cannes Film Festival tends to contain a fairly predictable lineup: The Official Selection focuses on established auteurs whose work lands a coveted slot at the flashy gathering on autopilot. That was certainly the case last year, when the 2016 edition opened with a Woody Allen movie and featured new work from the likes of Pedro Almodovar, Nicolas Winding Refn, the Dardennes brothers and Olivier Assayas.

But we live in unpredictable times, and judging by today’s announcement of the Official Selection for Cannes 2017, even the world’s most powerful festival isn’t impervious to change. This year’s Cannes is filled with surprises: television and virtual reality, some intriguing non-fiction selections, and a whole lot of unknown quantities that push the festival in fresh directions.

That’s not to say that there aren’t a few familiar names that stand out. Todd Haynes is »

Cannes Line Up

by Nathaniel R

The Cannes lineup was announced very early this morning (time differences, don'cha know) and we're here to give you details, not just film titles. While Tfe doesn't attend ($) we do follow from afar and hope to make the trek some day. The 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival runs May 17th through May 28th.

Opening Night

Which is a high profile gig but also risky as the knives are often out for a sacrifice to the festival gods to launch the cinextravaganza. 

Ismael’s Ghosts (Arnaud Desplechin)

French auteur Desplechin's latest will be released in the Us by Magnolia. It stars French A-Listers Marion Cotillard, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Mathieu Amalric, and Louis Garrel and revolves around a filmmaker (Amalric) working on a new picture when his long dead lover Carlotta (Cotillard) returns to life sending his life into a tailspin.

Cannes Lineup Announced: Coppola, Haynes and Safdie Brothers in Competition

13 April 2017 2:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Cannes Film Festival turns 70 this year, and for its anniversary edition, the world-famous event will launch new work from American directors Sofia Coppola, Noah Baumbach, and Todd Haynes, as well as fresh features from such world-renowned filmmakers as Michael Haneke, Lynne Ramsay, and Andrey Zvyagintsev.

Festival president Pierre Lescure and general delegate Thierry Frémaux announced 49 films from 29 countries, including 12 women directors and nine feature debuts. Among the surprises of the press conference were the inclusion of a virtual reality project from Alejandro G. Iñárritu and special presentations of two television projects, two episodes of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” revival and a screening of season two of Jane Campion’s “Top of the Lake.”

The festival will open with French director Arnaud Deplechin’s “Ismael’s Ghosts,” which stars Charlotte Gainsbourg and Marion Cotillard, two years after Frémaux was strongly criticized for letting the Directors’ Fortnight steal away Deplechin’s “My Golden Years. »

'Norman' Review: Richard Gere's Political Fixer Drama Is a Career High

11 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The subtitle for this compulsively watchable film is The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer. It’s a mouthful. But Norman, written and directed by American-born Israeli Joseph Cedar (Footnote) in his first English-language film, is a spellbinder that features Richard Gere in one of his best performances ever.

The American Gigolo star alters his movie-star looks to play Norman Oppenheimer, a schlubby loser who’s termed a "generous Jew" by the people he helps. Roaming the streets of New York in the same cap and »
