Cannes Film Festival - Thursday
I walked the red carpet one last time on Thursday, in my black crepe Martin Margiela dress.
Director Atom Egoyan's new film, Adoration, is competing in Cannes. It was received tepidly by the audience, and while I found the beginning way too chatty, the second half of the film moved me deeply. Unexpected twists unfold towards the end, leaving the spectator stunned.
Egoyan was accompanied by his leading lady, the radiant and moving Rachel Blanchard.
She plays a violinist, and the music that was composed for her character to play is just beautiful and haunting.
