Last week was the start of the biggest film festival in the world – Cannes, where film makers from around the globe come to show off some of the best work in the industry at the prestigious event. The event started in Cannes, France on May the 18th, and is relishing in 2 weeks of non-stop movie screenings, after show parties, and award ceremonies. This year marks the 70-year anniversary. So expect something big!
This year, our most anticipated film has got to be The Killing of A Sacred Deer by Yorgos Lanthimos, who’s feature film The Lobster gained a nomination at Cannes for its screenplay last year. The psychological thriller-horror film stars both Nicole Kidman and Collin Farrell, who plays a surgeon who adopts a sinister teenage boy. Another film we’re looking forward to seeing and is showing at Cannes this year, is The Mayerworitz Stories. The Netflix distributed comedy is directed by Noah Baumbach, and has an all-star cast including Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thomson and Ben Stiller!
If you’re not so keen on movies or Hollywood style after parties, Cannes may still have something for you. The glamorous town is full of luxury restaurants and world class patisseries, as well as gorgeous public and private beaches – perfect at this time of the year. If you’re up for a bit more pampering, we’d recommend the spa in the Le Mas Candille hotel where you’ll undoubtable rub shoulders with some Hollywood A-listers.
