The stars were out today for the opening of the 68th Cannes Film Festival. For the first time the jury is headed by two joint chairmen, brothers Ethan and Joel Coen, writers,directors and producers of epic Oscar winning movies such as Fargo and No Country For Old Men. The brothers were joined on the red carpet today by members of the Jury including British actress Sienna Miller who looked stunning in a Balenciaga gown and Jake Gyllenhaal, both causing a flurry of flash photography as the paparazzi jostled for position for the best shots. The opening film this morning stars Rod Paradot, alongside the wonderful Catherine Deneuve. La Tête Haute explores the journey of a young delinquent from the age of six to eighteen and follows his experience through juvenile courts and rehabilitation centres. Showing out of competition, the much awaited “Mad Max: Fury Road” is due to be screened during the festival and is expected to receive wide acclaim. And so this evening, the stars head out to play as Cannes comes alive and plays host to the best of the best in the movie business and with spectacular May weather on the French Riviera, this year’s event is set to be huge!
