It’s going to a wild Cannes Film Festival when the jury comes to its vote.
The jury will headed by “Titane” star Vincent Lindon, the first time a French actor has run the jury since Isabelle Huppert in 2009.
“Titane” is off the hook crazy and ugly but very inventive, I guess. Lindon has a long, awarded resume and is very popular in his home country.
The rest of the jury is impactful. Rebecca Hall, the actress who directed “Passing,” is on the list as well as directors Joachim Trier and Ashgar Fahardi. The latter’s “A Hero” was a big hit last year but he was successfully sued for stealing the idea from other filmmakers. Cannes loves controversy!
Also on the list are American director Jeff Nichols, Swedish actress Naomi Rapace, Indian actress Deepika Padukone, Italian actress Jasmine Trinca, and Ladj Ly, the director of the great movie “Les Miserables.”
