Protagonist Pictures have updated their website and have added The Childhood of A Leader to their Market Screening list for the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
The Guardian complied a list of the 30 Films they’d like to see at Cannes this year. One in particular caught our eye and we have to agree it’s one that we would love to see there too.
The Childhood Of A Leader
Brady Corbet’s made a career of being That Guy Who Was Great in That Thing. You half-recognised him in Thirteen, Melancholia or Martha Marcy May Marlene, now – finally – it might be his time to shine. His directorial debut, The Childhood of a Leader, will push many of the selectors’ buttons: it’s arty (based on a Jean-Paul Sartre short story), starry (Robert Pattinson, Bérénice Bejo) and sufficiently Francophile (set in Paris during the first world war, shot in both English and French). Director’s Fortnight at least.
Protagonist Pictures updated the status of The Childhood of A Leader on their website to ‘In Post- Production’ and also added that it’s a Psychological Thriller.
And in case you haven’t seen it before here’s the synopsis of the movie, also from Protagonist Pictures:
This chilling fable about the rise of fascism in the 20th Century tells the story of a young American boy living in France in 1918 whose father is working for the US government on the creation of the Treaty of Versailles. What he witnesses helps to mould his beliefs – and we witness the birth of a terrifying ego.
Loosely inspired by the early childhood experiences of many of the great dictators of the 20th Century and infused with the same sense of dread as The Others and The Omen, The Childhood of a Leader is an ominous portrait of emerging evil.”
Screen Daily is reporting that Yolande Moreau, Sophie Curtis and Liam Cunningham have joined Berenice Bejo, Robert Pattinson & Stacy Martin in The Childhood Of A Leader.
