2013 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Rebecca Zlotowski’s Grand Central

#37. Rebecca Zlotowski’s Grand Central

Gist: Cannes regulars Léa Seydoux, Tahar Rahim, and Olivier Gourmet star in a pic that is being called a complex romance set in the backdrop of France’s nuclear power industry.

Prediction: Zlotowski’s debut Belle Épine (also starring Seydoux) made a huge splash on the Croisette in 2010, with the sta wattage and the early shooting date start in August, I imagine the filmmaker has a chance at graduating into the Directors’ Fortnight section.
