As expected, the Cannes Film Festival has added a series of titles to the official selection. Two new midnight screenings are in the mix: Wayne Blair’s Australian film The Sapphires, starring Chris O’Dowd and Maniac, Frank Khalfoun’s reboot of the cult serial killer movie starring Elijah Wood. Candida Brady’s Trashed has been added as a special screening. The British film is a documentary about wastefulness. And, in Un Certain Regard, the fest has included Aida Begic’s Djeca from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Adam Leon’s buddy caper Gimme The Loot and Gilles Bourdos’ Renoir. The latter film, about the relationship between Auguste and Jean Renoir and a woman they both see as a muse, will close the UCR section. Final Cut by Hungary’s György Pálfi will close the Cannes Classics section.
