The 65th Cannes Film Festival starts today. Ever since its creation, the Festival de Cannes has remained faithful to its founding purpose: to draw attention to and raise the profile of films with the aim of contributing towards the development of cinema, boosting the film industry worldwide and celebrating cinema at an international level.
Twenty-two films will be in competition this year. Some of the films competing this year are:
Cosmopolis - Starring Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame, as a Wall Street wiz who embarks on a trippy journey through Manhattanâ€”and through his own jagged psyche.
Hemingway & Gellhorn - Starring Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman as the writer and reporter who fall in love amidst the Spanish Civil War.
Mud - Starring Matthew McConaughey as a fugitive on the run from bounty hunters, and on a quest to reunite with this true love, played by Reese Witherspoon.
