Twelve Films to Get Excited About at This Year’s Cannes Film Festival


The 64th edition of the Cannes Film Festival has begun, and there's a lot of excitement on the Croisette this year: Not only is there an unusually generous number of promising English-language films (and a whole lot more foreign films that could instantly vault to the top of many a critic's ten-best list), but there's also a clutch of directors returning to the fore who work too infrequently, including Lynne Ramsay and Terrence Malick. As the movies begin to unspool, we've selected a dozen that we can't wait to watch — from the high-profile question marks to the underrated dark horses — and we talked to some of the talented people that have brought them to the screen. (And keep checking back, since Vulture will have plenty more interviews and reports from the scene as Cannes continues.)
