The 65th Cannes Film Festival launches in two weeks and admittedly I have been focused on a half dozen films that are in the lineup that I believe have the greatest chance (at least at this point) of being in Telluride over the Labor Day weekend. That's not to say that there aren't other TFF #39 possibilities in the Cannes mix. Today, I'll take a look at some that also could make their way across the Atlantic to the San Juans.
LOW LIFE (OR THE UNTITLED JAMES GRAY PROJECT)
This film stars Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Renner and Joaquin Phoenix and although Gray has never made the trip to Telluride has always seemed like a film maker who could.
Look at this story from Just Jared:
Jeff Nichols had a breakout at Sundance last year with "Take Shelter" and this is his follow up. Again, since he's been making noise (as has Lee Daniels with Precious and who is also at Cannes with "The Paperboy") this could be a possible. Check this story from The Playlist:
