Which Cannes films could become Oscar contenders?

Cannes Movies

Although the awards season does not begin in earnest until fall, two of the top film festivals in the first half of the year often provide their fair share of potential opponents to the Oscars. In January, the Sundance Film Festival has created decent dramas as it calls me by your name and Mudbound, and now it’s time for the Cannes Film Festival to weigh. Several first Cannes films contained in the last race of the Oscars, including Best Film nominees against wind and tide, best actress also send Isabelle Huppert (for her) and Ruth Negga (for Amar), the nominee for the original screenplay of the lobster and Best foreign language film The Seller. She has the culture of Cannes this year produced a group of strong competitors? Leave the field so far and watch the Oscar races became more interesting.

One of the strongest competitors will be the Todd Haynes movie, marveling, an adaptation of a book by Brian Selznick floating among a deaf girl in the 1920s and 70s, a boy whose audience was stripped after lightning. Haynes, a consummate stylist, set up a beautiful film that must compete in various technology categories, including best photography for Ed Lachman (recently nominated for Haynes Carol Video Recording), Best Costume Design for three times winner Sandy Powell, and his Shot stronger in the win, the best score by Carter Burwell, who did a titanic job with a film that stretches for long periods of time without spoken dialogue.

Appointments are possible in appropriate scénarisme, production design and editing, and since the Academy is always a coward for makeup age, a late onset of Julianne Moore in a false nose and Wonderstruck prosthetic cramps could help compete for The best make-up and hairdresser. Moore herself, in a double role, is still not enough filmed to present a significant challenge to the best supporting actress; Same Michelle Williams, who came and went as the child’s mother in the 1970s, but the two categories that highlight Wonderstruck are arguably the best film and best director. I do not think one is a slam dunk: Carol got six nominations, but not both keywords and marvels, although welcome, is not so aroused so much passion for his predecessor Croisette. However, the deep pocket Amazon Studios, encouraged by the success of this season of the Oscars with Manchester by the Sea, is likely to push with astonishment.

Another potential threat is The Seducer, Sofia Coppola’s remake of a 1971 film by Clint Eastwood, when a soldier wounded in the Civil War, who recovers from an all-girl boarding school in Virginia, triggers a chain reaction between the women. The painter’s film compositions deserves absolutely a nomination for the best photography, and DP Philippe Le Sourd scored his first Oscar nomination a few years ago by Grandmaster Wong Kar-wai. I suspect the costumes Stacey Battat also argue, as they are important throughout life and the Academy loves a good time roasted time.

Something else will depend on whether the seducer, a summer version has legs to make it through the storm of falling contenders awards. Although I liked the Beguiled over Wonderstruck, I think Academy voters could find an “entertainment” plus an Oscar movie (a strange distinction, I know, but significant), which could limit Coppola’s chances at two First categories, unless the jury of Cannes gives its approval. However, I hope people will consider Kirsten Dunst’s performance support throughout the year. It’s subtle and heartbreaking as the teacher is most supported by Private Colin Farrell, and this is the best great screen job he’s done for years.

Nicole Kidman is also very good at The Seducer as director of the school, but I suspect her chances are better for the Oscars. The murder of a sacred deer, a comic thriller Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, who was named the last year by co- Write the lobster. It could mark the search again, although this very good film of a teenager torn by a sinister family is sure to polarize: it is just in the handkerchief that it feels good that some Oscar love and lovers have Cannes found in her completely cruel comedy. However, Kidman plays the matriarch of a fascinating ambivalence and anchors the film. The 49-year-old actress has one of her best years with little big lies, Top of the Lake: China Girl and a number of big screen auctions, and when deer released in November, voters might decide to impress The returns here as prize accumulated for their return.

Are other actors emerging from Cannes during the Oscar season? You can make a case of Dustin Hoffman, who is very good at the Meyerowitz The stories of Noah Baumbach, as artist felt never praised, but the film will start on Netflix, which limits his chances Oscar. (The Hoffman co-stars Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller have also received good reviews but I think the comments were only relieved to see them make a decent movie for once.) Diane Kruger could try to get in the game for Fatih Akin is on The Fade where she plays a stretched woman revenge after a terrorist attack, but the film has not been acclaimed in the same way as it was last year and a performance in a foreign language really requires critical support if it is expected Cross an Oscar shooting range.

However, in the cast he will probably be one of the contenders for the best foreign language film, and according to what each country chooses to present, you will also be able to see nominations in this category for Russia’s disappointment Loveless, the magnificent French theater ACT UP 120 beats per minute or Sweden Square, a comedy from the world of art by Ruben Östlund, whose acclaimed film Almost made the Oscar cut a few years ago.

And then there are the movies we have not seen. Lynne Ramsay, you’re never really here, wrote Friday in Cannes, and is the favorite actor Joaquin Phoenix as a war veteran who seeks justice in a perverse world of sex trafficking. Phoenix has also appeared on a coil selected by Focus Features here on the Croisette, where they derided several of their upcoming films that have a potential Oscar, such as Judi Dench’s Royal Victoria comedy drama and Abdul, Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill in the darkest Hours, and the most intriguing entry, Mary Magdalene, a rich biblical drama with Rooney Mara as the main character. It is directed by Garth Davis, the beginning of the film Leon was a major competitor last year, and co-starred as Phoenix as Jesus, the 42-year-old actor who plays as a kind of Californian hippie surprised. Expect the first in fall film festivals, where we will choose above Oscar.
