From an In­dian con­nect to Won­der­struck’s Acad­emy as­pi­ra­tions, day two at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val saw much more than just films

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

The sec­ond day at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val was about films that gen­er­ated much ex­cite­ment for the Os­car race. Ten­der child­hood mys­tery Won­der­struck was the first one to spark the Os­car buzz. In the film, ac­tor Ju­lianne Moore is play­ing both a silent movie siren and a deaf 1970- era New Yorker. US movie web­site Indiewire called the movie “ex­quis­ite” and an “im­mac­u­lately crafted fa­ble about the ways in which peo­ple of all ages learn to break out of their bod­ies and con­nect with the world”.

Later in the day, the mak­ers of the film Le­viathan screened their new movie, Love­less, a per­sonal drama with po­lit­i­cal over­tones. Apart from films, the sec­ond poster of Ira­nian film­maker Ma­jid Ma­jidi’s film Be­yond The Clouds was also un­veiled. The new look saw a sil­hou­ette shot of ac­tor Ishaan Khat­ter, Shahid Kapoor’s half brother walk­ing in a slum area with a bun­dle in his hand un­der a star­less sky. Adding to this In­dian con­nect, the first look poster of Shruti Haasan, Jayam Ravi and Arya star­rer trilin­gual his­toric drama Sang­hami­tra was also launched there.
