Marilyn at Cannes

The official poster for the 65th Cannes Film Festival has been released, and it features a familiar photo to regular readers of this blog. Yes, this is now the third time that this image of Marilyn Monroe is making an appearance here but I love it, and I love the poster. The organizers who chose Marilyn as the icon for this year's festival said "Fifty years after her death, Marilyn is still a major figure in world cinema, an eternal icon, whose grace, mystery and power of seduction remain resolutely contemporary." Indeed.

The Cannes Film Festival runs May 16-27. Filmmaker Nanni Moretti, the 2001 Palme d'Or winner for La stanza del figlio, will head the jury.
