The 70th Cannes Film Festival runs from Wednesday May 17 to Sunday May 28 and, as ever, features hugely-anticipated world premieres from many of the world’s leading filmmakers. From America, there are new films from Sofia Coppola (‘The Beguiled’), Todd Haynes (‘Wonderstruck’) and Noah Baumbach (‘The Meyerowitz Stories’) – as well as the unveiling of the first two episodes of David Lynch’s revived TV series ‘Twin Peaks’. Other world cinema heavyweights heading to France include the double Palme d’Or-winning Austrian director Michael Haneke (‘Happy End’); Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos (‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’); and Russian Andrey Zvyagintsev (‘Loveless’). French filmmakers competing for the coveted Palme d’Or include François Ozon (‘Double Lover’), Jacques Doillon (‘Rodin’) and Robin Campillo (‘120 Beats Per Minute’). The one British filmmaker in contention for cinema’s most prestigious award is Lynne Ramsay, whose Joaquin Phoenix-starring ‘You Were Never Really Here’ is her first film since 2011’s ‘We Need to Talk About Kevin’.
Here's the full list of films screening at Cannes 2017 in contention for the Palme d’Or, updated with Time Out reviews as soon as we've seen them:
