Sometimes all a forgotten shade needs is a little attention from a major leading lady. Jessica Chastain revived the color purple when she hit the carpet at Cannes in this attention-grabbing violet Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci gown. Purple is back, bitches! Sure, the shade sort of reminds us of a giant bottle of Dimetapp cough syrup. Or what Violet Beauregarde might wear to senior prom. But that doesn't diminish the gorgeous features of this dress. Photos: Check out which other stars stepped out at Cannes 2013! We love the simple, sexy neckline and that tasteful slit up the front. Plus, those shiny embellishments certainly draw attention to all of Jessica's curves. So is purple the »
It was a special night in France with the 20th annual amfAR gala taking place during the Cannes Film Festival today. The event raises money for AIDS research, and this year, it featured The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show, as well as an auction. Guests were in for a special treat since a trip to space with Leonardo DiCaprio was up for bid! Before the fun began inside, though, stars hit the red carpet in their finest. Model Alessandra Ambrosio worked the cameras in a metallic gown while Goldie Hawn brought a pop of color in yellow and Rosario Dawson kept it neutral in black. Milla Jovovich, Jessica Chastain, in a red Saint Laurent look, Sharon Stone, Janet Jackson, Kylie Minogue, and Ellie Goulding also made appearances. View Slideshow › »

Eva Longoria and Rosario Dawson, take note: This is how you avoid a crotch flash with class. While there have been quite a few wardrobe malfunctions at the Cannes Film Festival thus far, Jessica Chastain wisely made sure she wouldn't have a similar fashion faux pas on the red carpet. Knowing she would have to hike up her dress to climb the steep steps at the All Is Lost premiere, the actress donned purple Spanx underneath her embellished Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci gown. The plum hue so perfectly matched the dress, we did a double take before realizing the undergarments weren't actually a part of the gown! True, a Spanx peek-a-boo moment isn't exactly ideal but let's be honest »
Epic and erotic yet intimate – Abdellatif Kechiche's uncompromising story of an affair makes other films look tame
There's a devastating mix of eroticism and sadness in Abdellatif Kechiche's new film, which returns to the style and setting of his 2003 movie Games Of Love and Chance. It's the epic but intimate story of a love affair between two young women, unfolding in what seems like real time. There's an interestingly open, almost unfinished quality to the narrative, although this could just be because the print shown here in Cannes was still without credits. The film is acted with honesty and power by Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos; the affair itself is a little idealised, and the film is flawed by one rather histrionic scene, though not, I think, by its expansive three-hour length. Nonetheless, this is still a blazingly emotional and explosively sexy film, which reminds you how timidly unsexy most films are, »

Jessica Chastainwas a vision in her gorgeous purple beaded Givenchy gown at the All Is Lost premiere held at the Palais des Festivals in France at the Cannes Film Festival. The 36-year-old was radiant on the red carpet!
Jessica Chastain’s Cannes Film Festival Dress:
The Zero Dark Thirty star looked drop dead gorgeous in her purple Givenchy gown. This was her second time wearing Givenchy in Cannes. The gown had a very low scoop neck, thin beaded streps and beading all over the chest. Silk fabric cinched in her waist, leading to the rest of the dress which was covered in beading and sequins. She tied her beautiful red locks into a loose pony; looking effortless! Jessica’s fair skin and bright red hair make this magnificent gown shine on the red carpet. »

AFI Docs has announced its slate of films for the 2013 festival, and it certainly won't be lacking for big names. Opening with the star-studded Bill Couturie documentary "Letters to Jackie" and closing with Aj Schnack's behind-the-scenes look at the 2012 Gop leadership race "Caucus," the 2013 edition of AFI Docs is set to shine a light on many a famous face. "Letters to Jackie" focuses on the thousands of letters sent to Jacqueline Kennedy after her husband's assassination in 1963. Oscar-winning director Bill Couturie incorporates archival footage as well as letter readings from actors including Jessica Chastain, Zooey Deschanel, Anne Hathaway, Michelle Williams, and Channing Tatum.

Set to run from June 19-23 in Washington, DC, the festival formerly known as Silverdocs has a new name, »

All Is Lost is a man-stranded-at-sea movie, starring Robert Redford, in a role that has almost no dialogue, as a fellow who wakes up in his small yacht, somewhere in the middle of the Indian Ocean, only to discover that a random floating railway car — who knows how it got there? — has gashed a hole in the boat’s hull. It’s like his own miniature iceberg scrape: All of a sudden, his boat could go down, and him with it. Most movies that strand a solitary figure at sea, like Life of Pi, or on a desert island, like »

Hollywood's finest and most familiar faces - from Jessica Chastain to Jessica Biel - have flocked to the South of France for the Cannes Film Festival. (Did we mention Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio and Emma Watson, too?) But the true stars of the festival have yet to show up. Meet the ginger-colored cats who steal scenes from Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake in the Coen brothers' latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis. (Fun fact: It took six felines to fill the role of the cat who follows Isaac around 1961 New York in the film.) Not surprisingly, the four-legged stars were quite the divas. »

Chicago – “Mama” isn’t exactly an original piece (it borrows heavily from horror archetypes, particularly those that turned Asian horror into a trend) but it isn’t always the originality of the composition but how well it’s played that matters. “Mama” is, mostly, well-played. The atmosphere brought to it by director Andy Muschietti, the character depth provided by Jessica Chastain, the brilliant touch of producer Guillermo Del Toro — “Mama” deliveres. Mostly. Some decisions made in the CGI department are disappointing but there’s still a lot to like here. Definitely worth a rental.
On the cusp of the 2008 economic crash, a man kidnaps his two daughters and attempts to kill them in a remote cabin before he’s destroyed by a supernatural force. The two girls survive with the apparition that they name Mama until they’re found by the man’s twin brother (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and brought »

Welcome to the second podcast from the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, where my only guest for this one is Kevin Jagernauth from The Playlist as the two of us stood outside the Bazin theater before seeing Blood Ties and discussed Monsoon Shootout, Inside Llewyn Davis (read my review here), Seduced and Abandoned (read my review here) and Jimmy P. (read my review here). What I hoped to deliver with these was to give you a taste of some of the random conversations we tend to have after seeing the movies as we work out our own thoughts and take in the thoughts of others. That said, there are spoilers and it's not a traditional review format as we discuss the films with one another as if anyone listening has already seen them. I hope you enjoy. I have included the synopsis for each film discussed below as well as the timestamps where they are discussed. »

You don't get points for the good movie no one went to see. Pretend for a moment you have an endless amount of money to make any movie you want. What would it be? An action film? Romance? Comedy? Who would direct? Who would star? Pretend I came to you with a film directed by James Toback (Tyson) starring Alec Baldwin and Neve Campbell in something of a politically-inspired erotic Middle Eastern adventure inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris in which there's the promise of exploratory sex. How much would you be willing to pay to help fund that film? Better yet, what would it take to get you to fund that film? While navigating the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, Toback and Baldwin took such an idea to a variety of investors, both foreign and domestic to get the proposed film off the ground, while also taking a »

Spirited, highly amusing and endearingly shambolic, James Toback’s “Seduced and Abandoned” seeks to represent an “uncategorizable” work about film, money, Cannes and death, roughly in that order. In other words, it’s basically a documentary that tracks the writer-helmer himself and co-conspirator Alec Baldwin as they schlep around the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and beyond, trying to hustle up coin for a loose remake of “Last Tango in Paris,” and meeting other filmmakers, financiers, studio execs, and stars along the way. Ultimately, the pic offers a timely, melancholy-tinged tribute to those fighting quixotically to make enduring, ambitious art rather than revenue for revenue’s sake.
Already acquired by HBO for North American broadcast, the pic could have dainty niche-theatrical legs offshore similar to those of “Side by Side.” Where Chris Kenneally’s recent docu about the digital-vs.-film debate was anchored by Keanu Reeves, “Seduced and Abandoned” has two charismatic frontmen in Toback and Baldwin, »

James Toback and Alec Baldwin press the flesh with financiers, journos and A-listers such as Martin Scorsese and Ryan Gosling in this endlessly revealing guilty-pleasure documentary shot at Cannes last year
Director James Toback is preaching to the choir with this one: it's hard to think of a movie which would be more eagerly gobbled up at Cannes. It's guilty-pleasure romp of a documentary, filmed at last year's Cannes film festival, all about the gorgeous, deadly and heartbreaking business of cinema itself. The 68-year-old Toback is asking himself, and us: can he have one more hit before he dies? Or is this the long goodbye, an agonising chase after less and less money, as his career gets colder and colder? With that question, the film morphs into a fascinatingly explicit meditation on death.
His leading player here is a man who is becoming one of the most intriguing figures in showbusiness: Alec Baldwin, »
