Cannes: New Looks At Juliette Binoche & Kristen Stewart In ‘Clouds Of Sils Maria’ & 6 Images From Ken Loach’s ‘Jimmy’s Hall’
A couple of new images from two highly anticipated Cannes entries have hit the web this afternoon. First up, and following the release of six images earlier this week, a further three images have arrived online from Olivier Assayas’ ‘Clouds Of Sils Maria.’ The film is said to explore “middle age and that introspective period where one questions how they’ve spent their life so far and what they’ve accomplished.” The title refers to the Swiss setting, with Kristen Stewart playing the assistant to Juliette Binoche’s lead character, an actress who becomes obsessed with a young Hollywood starlet (Chloë Grace Moretz) playing the role that made the older actress famous when she was young.

The full synopsis for ‘Clouds Of Sils Maria’ is follows: At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena.
Announced to premiere at Cannes earlier today, these first two images have landed online from Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut ‘Lost River’ (formerly titled ‘How to Catch a Monster’). Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Saoirse Ronan, Ben Mendelsohn, Eva Mendes, Matt Smith and Rob Zabrecky star in the modern fantasy-drama, for which Gosling has also written the screenplay. ‘Lost River’ weaves elements of fantasy noir, and suspense into a modern day fairy tale. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy (Hendricks), a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son, Bones, discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive.
‘Lost River’ marks Ryan Gosling’s first time writing and directing a feature film. Gosling is an Oscar nominated actor having starred in films including ‘The Place Beyond the Pines,’ ‘Drive,’ ‘Lars and the Real Girl,’ ‘Blue Valentine,’ ‘Gangster Squad’ and ‘Half Nelson,’ for which he received his Academy Award nomination. No release date has been set, yet expect to see ‘Lost River’ on the big screen later this year.
