French actress-director Emmanuelle Bercot’s film ‘La Tete Haute’ starring Catherine Deneuve will open the 2015 Cannes Film Festival on May 13.
The last time a female director opened the festival was 1987, when Diane Kury’s ‘A Man in Love’ launched the Cannes event. Bercot also stars in Maiwenn’s ‘Mon Roi’, a French film that’s a strong favorite to premiere in the official selection. Variety writes:
Observers close to the festival noted that, after a run of splashy, star-powered opening entries (“Midnight in Paris,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” “The Great Gatsby,” “Grace of Monaco”), festival topper Thierry Fremaux had been looking specifically for a French entry to kick off the festivities, especially in a year when the main competition jury is being presided over by two American directors, Joel and Ethan Coen. The last time a solely French-produced film opened Cannes was in 2005, with Dominik Moll’s “Lemming.”
The French film — whose title translates as “holding one’s head high” — narrates the story of a juvenile delinquent, a committed social worker trying to save him, and a children’s court judge
The Cannes Film Festivval runs May 13-24.
