Variety the spice of Lenny’s life
“The most exciting filmmaker to come out of Ireland since Neil Jordan,” is how international film trade paper Variety describes director Lenny Abrahamson in its Cannes edition. Taking a cue from the festival’s celebration of its 60th edition this year, Variety chose its “Cannes Fest Zest 60”, comprising actors, producers, directors, distributors and sales agents from around the world.
Abrahamson arrives in Cannes this morning for the world premiere of his new movie, Garage, in the prestigious Directors Fortnight section tomorrow evening. He will be joined by the film’s star, Pat Shortt, producer Ed Guiney, and screenwriter Mark O’Halloran, who also collaborated with Abrahamson on Adam &Paul.
