The last film of Claude Miller, who died earlier this month after falling ill, will have its premiere as the closing night film of this year's Cannes Film Festival.  The film, an adaptation of the novel "Thérèse Desqueyroux" by Francois Mauriac, stars Audrey Tautou in the title role, a woman in 1920's France too smart for the bourgeois man she married. In announcing the film would play closing night, the festival noted that it was "pleased to pay tribute" to the Nouvelle Vague filmmaker.   The full press release is below. Claude Miller’s last film to close the Festival de Cannes "Thérèse D." by Claude Miller, with Audrey Tautou in the title role, and Gilles Lellouche and Anaïs Demoustier, will be screened at the closing of the 65th Festival de Cannes on 27 May in the Grand Théâtre Lumière of the Palais des Festivals.
