What's on at Cannes 2015

The line-up is announced


The line-up for the Cannes Film Festival 2015 has been announced along with a warning from the festival's artistic director about restricting selfies.


'We are waging a campaign to slow down the contemporary practice of selfies on the red carpet and the steps,' Thierry Frémaux said at yesterday's press conference.

'Beyond what we think, it’s a practice that’s often extremely ridiculous and grotesque.'

Though a whole generation would disagree, the statement didn't detract from the incredible line-up.


Here are some of our highlights:

A Tale of Love and Darkness, the directorial debut by Natalie Portman.


Amy, a documentary about Amy Winehouse by the award-winning Asif Kapadia (Senna). 

Cate Blanchett stars in Carol, Todd Haynes’s adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith novel about a clandestine lesbian love affair in 1950s New York.

The much anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult will have its world premiere a day before its international release.

A new adaptation of Macbeth starring Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender

The Lobster starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Colman and Ben Whishaw is a surrealist drama set in a future dystopia in which single people are turned into animals should they fail to find a mate.

The Sea of Trees starring Matthew McConaughey as a man considering suicide who meets a possible saviour in a Japanese forest

Woody Allen’s An Irrational Man stars ELLE favourite Emma Stone as a college student who falls for her philosophy professor, played by Joaquin Phoenix.
