Cannes Unveils 2015 Official Selection Lineup

16 April 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.

While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

Emmanuelle Bercot is first female director to open Cannes since 1987

13 April 2015 1:35 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Emmanuelle Bercot will be the first female director to open the Cannes Film Festival in more than 25 years.

Her film La Tête haute is to screen at the event on Wednesday, May 13. Diane Kurys was the last female filmmaker to open the festival when her drama A Man in Love premiered in 1987.

La Tête haute tells the story of a juvenile delinquent, Malony, and his upbringing from childhood to adulthood as a children's judge and social worker try to save him.

Thierry Frémaux, Cannes' General Delegate, said: "The choice of this film may seem surprising, given the rules generally applied to the Festival de Cannes Opening Ceremony."

He explained: "It is a clear reflection of our desire to see the Festival start with a different piece, which is both bold and moving.

"Emmanuelle Bercot's film makes important statements about contemporary society, in keeping with modern cinema. It focusses on universal social issues, »

A female directed film will open the Cannes Film Festival for the first time in 28 years

13 April 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's not the greatest historical note to kick a festival off with, but the opening night film at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival will be the first directed by a woman since 1987. Emmanuelle Bercot, best known for 2001's "Clément" and co-writing 2011's "Polisse," returns to Cannes with "La Tête haute" ("Heads Up") which follows the lifestory of Malory from the age of 6 to 18.  This "Boyhood"-esque tale features different actors playing Malory, but Rod Paradot portrays him for a majority of the film.  Catherine Deneuve, Benoît Magimel, Sara Forestier round out the cast. Diane Kurys was the last woman to helm a opening night film, "A Man in Love," 28 years ago. Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate of the Festival remarked, "The choice of this film may seem surprising, given the rules generally applied to the Festival de Cannes Opening Ceremony.  It is a clear reflection of our desire to see the Festival start with a different piece, »

French Boyhood: Emmanuelle Bercot Takes Center Stage with “La Tête Haute” as Cannes Opener

13 April 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Backstage helmer Emmanuelle Bercot will instead be taking the center stage. Ranked #77 in our top 100 most anticipated foreign films for 2015 and starring red carpet habitual Catherine Deneuve, Benoît Magimel (who resembles a Sean Penn in the official photo above), Sara Forestier and Rod Paradot as our child protag, La Tête Haute has been selected as the opening film of the the 68th Festival de Cannes Film Festival.

This is the French filmmaker’s fourth feature film as a director and second trip two Cannes, having previously been invited with her debut film in the Un Certain Regard section with Clement. The selection is a welcome switch-up from what was often, less than flattering opening international-friendly safe-bet items. I’m thinking of Antoine Doinels of film history canon and Linklater’s Boyhood since it traces a exact child to adulthood route, but compared with previous years, Thierry Frémaux’s selection might »

'La Tete Haute' to Open the 2015 Cannes Film Festival

13 April 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The opening night film at the Cannes Film Festival has typically been something with major star power or something out of Hollywood to draw out the names to the red carpet, but for the 2015 Cannes Film Festival the organizers have gone a different route, announcing in their press release that for the first time in the history of the festival, a female director will open the fest. Emmanuelle Bercot's La Tete Haute starring Catherine Deneuve will serve as said opener on May 13. The film tells the story of a juvenile delinquent, Malony (Rod Paradot), and his upbringing from childhood to adulthood, as a children's judge and social worker try to save him. It was filmed in the Nord-Pas de Calais, Rhone-Alpes and Paris area regions, and along with Deneuve and Paradot, the film stars Beno?t Magimel and Sara Forestier.

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

The Conversation: One Never Cannes Tell… 2015 Cannes Film Fest Predictions

9 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With the world’s most prestigious film festival just around the corner, cineastes have been lasciviously salivating about what’s going to show up at Cannes, with wish lists appearing almost immediately after Berlin (a fest that had one of their most impressive line-ups ever) announced their awards. The remainder of the 2015 fest circuit looks to be a plentiful, diverse porridge, with many of the world’s most renowned auteurs’ sporting brand new titles. While many prognosticators will be sharing the same lists, more or less, hopes are incredibly high for a handful of sure bets, and a gaggle of hopefuls. The main competition always seems easier to postulate, though Thierry Fremaux always throws a few curves, (After the Battle in 2012, The Hunt in 2013 or last year’s Timbuktu, which won the Cesar for Best Picture recently, are a couple ready examples of under-the-radar titles).

Italy seems primed for saturation at the fest. »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #79. Emmanuelle Bercot’s La tête haute

6 January 2015 6:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

La tête haute

Director: Emmanuelle Bercot // Writer: Emmanuelle Bercot, Marcia Romano

Though initially an actress that appeared in films from Jean-Francois Richet and Benoit Jacquot (and more recently, two films from Maiwenn, including Polisse, which Bercot co-wrote), Emmanuelle Bercot has fashioned her own career as a director, most recently with the Catherine Deneuve headlined On My Way. Bercot reteams with Deneuve for La tête haute (Head Held High), and adds other exciting names like Benoit Magimel and Sara Forestier to the mix. Co-written by Marcia Romano, who penned delicious titles by Ozon, such as Under the Sand and Criminal Lovers, the film tells the story of Malony and his education as he grows from a six-year-old into an 18-year-old. A minors’ judge and a caseworker work tirelessly to try to save the young offender.

Mon roi

Director: Maiwenn // Writers: Etienne Comar, Maiwenn

Actress turned director Maiwenn’s last stint behind the camera won her the Jury Prize at Cannes 2011 with the moving dramatic ensemble, Polisse.

The film, shot back in March, recounts, over the course of several years, the passionate and intricate love story of a couple with a child.

Cast: Vincent Cassel, Emmanuelle BercotLudovic Berthillot

Producers: France 2 Cinema, Les Productions du Tresor’s Alain Attal (Blood Ties), Studiocanal.
