The connoisseurs of Cannes Film Festival have unveiled the official poster for this year’s festivities – and it looks rather fabulously retro-chic. In case you’re wondering who these loved-up doves are – they’re Paul Newman and his wife Joanne Woodward in a film I won’t pretend I’ve seen. Apparently taken whilst the couple were filming A New Kind of Love by Melville Shavelson (1963), according to the clever clogs at Cannes. It’s an undeniably wonderful poster, and I expect to see this being slapped up at every inch of the French Riviera come 15th to 26th May.
I’m also pleased to announce that The Moviejerk is descending on the Croisette for the first time ever – if I could get hold of an accommodation, that is. But fret not – I’ll do whatever it takes to cover the latest films and bring you bang-up-to-date reviews, even if it means sleeping on the streets like a hobo, building a tent on la plage or crashing on somebody else’s yacht. The latter would be ideal, of course, but let’s see how it goes.
