The official Cannes plan will be up in three weeks. But now it’s the time to show the speculations out!
With three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official lineup, Variety is making some predictions as to what will be included, including the latest Pixar 3D animated feature and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin.
Representing North America in Variety’s predictions is Todd Haynes’ “Carol,” a 1950s-set lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. “Carol” will be released this fall, and would mark Haynes’ first appearance at Cannes since 1998’s “Velvet Goldmine,” which received a prize for best artistic contribution from the jury.
