Cannes Film Festival lineup announced

I’ve never gone to the Cannes Film Festival, a prestigious celebration of world cinema and a thoroughly glamorous event for which even journalists are known to pack eveningwear. (I do not, alas, bring a gown when I attend the Toronto International Film Festival, first because it’s a casual festival and no press people dress up, and second because I don’t actually have one.) But I do like to keep an eye on the events on the Riviera, from afar. Today most of the film lineup was announced — I say “most” because there’s still some uncertainty surrounding Terrence Malick’s “Tree of Life,” starring Brad Pitt; festival director Thierry Fremaux said that the notoriously meticulous Malick hasn’t finished the film yet, but they’re “crossing our fingers” that it will be ready in time for the festival. Those films which are ready, in competition, include Mike Leigh’s “Another Year,” starring Leigh regulars Jim Broadbent and Imelda Staunton; Abbas Kiarastomi’s “The Certified Copy,” with Juliette Binoche; Takeshi Kitano’s thriller “Outrage”; Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “Biutiful”; and Doug Liman’s CIA drama “Fair Game,” featuring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn as Valerie Plame Wilson and Joseph Wilson. Screening out of competition will be Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood” (previously announced); Woody Allen’s latest made-in-London comedy “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger”; Stephen Frears’ “Tamara Drewe,” based on a graphic novel by Posey Simmonds; and Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps.”
The Cannes Film Festival, this year celebrating its 63rd anniversary, runs May 12-23.
