When Robert Pattinson arrives at the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of his film, Good Time, he will be among friends. Rob and several of his fellow A lister co-stars and directors have films at the festival this year.
The festival opened with a co-star of Rob’s kicking off the Un Certain Regard category. Mathieu Amalric’s “Barbara,” a biopic of the mono-monikered French chanteuse. Amalric played the pie-thrower in Cosmopolis.
Directors’ Fortnight opened with the critically acclaimed Claire Denis’ “Dark Glasses.” Denis will be directing Rob later this year in High Life.
One of Rob’s favorite actresses, Isabelle Huppert (he saw her on stage in Phaedra in both London and NY), is a fixture at Cannes, and the Safide brothers walked the red carpet behind her on Monday, May 22nd (they posted video on IG).
Maps To The Stars co-star, Julianne Moore is there with Wonderstruck and Rob’s Queen of the Desert co-star, Nicole Kidman, will have four projects at Cannes. Bel Ami co-star Uma Thruman is President of the Un Certain Regard Jury. Old friends Rhianna, Elle Fanning, Gael Garcia Bernal
, and director Sofia Coppola are also at the festival.
