Springtime means we're less than a month away from watching celebrities head down to the French Riviera in their finest avant-garde outfits: Cannes Film Festival, which runs from May 13 to 24, has announced its 2015 lineup. Todd Haynes and Gus Van Sant are both in competition, as is Australian Justin Kurzel with his rendition of Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. (More populist fare like George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road and Woody Allen's Irrational Man will screen out of competition.) There are special screenings of Natalie Portman's directing debut, A Tale of Love and Darkness, and Asif Kapadia's documentary on Amy Winehouse. Below is the list of screenings, and more will be added in the coming weeks.
