  Portrait of a Lady on Fire


  French writer-director Céline Sciamma made hername with a trio of coming-of-age films: Water Lilies (2007), Tomboy (2011) and most recently thecritically acclaimed 2014 drama Girlhood, whichopened Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight and wasdescribed by The Observer’s Mark Kermode as “honest, empowering and electrifying”.


  A period piece, Portrait of a Lady on Fire marks a departure of sorts for Sciamma. It’s set in 18th-Century Brittany and stars Water Lilies’ Adèle Haenel as ‘reluctant bride-to-be’ Hélo?seand Noémie Merlant as the artist commissioned to paint her portrait in secret. Portrait of aLady on Fire is the first of Sciamma’s films to be in competition for the Palme d’Or.




  Bong Joon-ho’s latest film is a tragicomedy that explores the power dynamics between twofamilies who live in very different social circumstances. Bong Joon-ho, director of dystopianclimate-change sci-fi Snowpiercer (2013), has said he thinks Parasite may be too localized to be “100% understood” by foreign audiences. And yet the differences between the two families, hesaid, “mirror the universal gap between the rich and the poor”.


  The Dead Don’t Die


  With a sequel to Zombieland, a prequel to Night of the Living Dead and a new Walking Deadspin-off in the works, the zombie genre is showing no signs of dying out. Even the Cannes FilmFestival is getting in on the undead action, with beloved US indie director Jim Jarmusch’s star-studded feature The Dead Don’t Die.


  Bill Murray, Chlo? Sevigny and Adam Driver play a deadpanning, befuddled trio of small-towncops faced with an invasion of brain-eaters, while Tilda Swinton appears as a no-nonsensemortician with a Scottish accent. An eclectic and mouthwatering cast of actors includes regularJarmusch collaborators.


  Little Joe


  In a creepy genetically modified-plant sci-fi from the Austrian director Jessica Hausner, the ‘Little Joe’ in question is a bright-red flower, cultivated to bring happiness to its owners. WhenAlice (Emily Beecham) takes it home for her son, they begin to realize the plant may not be asbenevolent as it appears. Ben Whishaw, Lindsay Duncan and Kerry Fox co-star in the British-Austrian film that marks Hausner’s first appearance in Cannes’ official selection.


  But Hausner is already a familiar face on the Croisette: she previously won the top prize in theUn Certain Regard section of the festival with Lovely Rita (2001), and her films Hotel (2004) and Amour Fou (2014) also competed in Un Certain Regard.


  Once Upon a Time in Hollywood


  Quentin Tarantino sets his sights on late 60s, Manson-era Hollywood, with Leonardo DiCaprio aswashed-up actor Rick Dalton and Brad Pitt his stunt double Cliff Booth in the pair’s firstappearance together on screen. Al Pacino, Tarantino regular Tim Roth and Dakota Fanningalso feature, with Damian Lewis playing Steve McQueen and Margot Robbie as Dalton’s ill-fatedneighbor, Sharon Tate.
