Cannes line-up showcases Asia, Australia talent

The organisers of the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday unveiled a line-up this year that confirms the burgeoning talent from Asia and Australia, while throwing in a couple of crowd-pleasing big-budget pictures alongside a slew of arthouse offerings. The selection for the official sections — including those vying for Cannes’s Palme d’Or top prize — heralded a wide range: from intimate, auteur movies right up to action-driven spectaculars. The list is “beautiful, it’s new, it poses questions, it takes risks, and it says much about the state of global creativity,” festival director Thierry Fremaux said. America is present with “Carol”, a lesbian drama starring Cate Blanchett, and “The Sea of Trees” with Matthew McConaughey, both in the race for the Palme d’Or.
