New York, NY (PRWEB) May 19, 2013
Who Has The Remote? announced its Top 3 most-anticipated films at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, following a Bloomberg report which stated that twenty films are in the running for the prestigious Palme d’Or award. The Cannes Film Festival is an annual, international film festival, this year occurring from May 15-26. It is perhaps the most prestigious film festival in the world, with the purpose of bringing awareness to and celebrating the film industry worldwide. Each year, the festival jury chooses the winner of the Palme d’Or – the top honor awarded at Cannes – for the director of the best feature film of the official competition. The following are WhoHasTheRemote.com’s top three.
First on list is The Past, from Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, starring Berenice Bejo – the actress from last year’s smash hit, The Artist. Little is known about this film, but it is said to be set in Paris and chronicles a love story between a North African boy and an Iranian girl. WhoHasTheRemote.com picked The Past in its top 3 list due to the critical acclaim Farhadi has received for his prior efforts. Farhadi’s A Separation also won the foreign-language Oscar last year. This new film is sure to be a favorite of critics and audiences alike.
Next up is the Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra, starring Michael Douglas as the famous pianist and Matt Damon as his lover. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, this film is said to be his last; he has stated that he will be taking a hiatus from filmmaking after this year. Soderbergh is a commercially and critically-successful director behind famous films like Erin Brokovich, Traffic, and Oceans Eleven. This being Soderbergh’s last movie for some time, Who Has The Remote? believes that Behind the Candelabra will be eagerly watched by fans and audiences the world over.
Perhaps the most highly-anticipated film of all at Cannes this year is the latest Coen Brothers movie, Inside Llewyn Davis. It tells the story of a 1960’s folk singer trying to make his way in Greenwich Village. It has a star-studded cast, featuring Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, and Justin Timberlake. Joel and Ethan Coen are the filmmakers behind Fargo, The Big Lebowski, No Country For Old Men, and several other critical and cult favorites. Before you watch Inside Llewyn Davis, have a Coen Brothers movie marathon by signing up for satellite tv deals and watching their films at home.
The Palme d’Or is the most prestigious award at the Cannes Film Festival, which honors the director of the best feature film at the festival. This year, there are twenty contenders for the award. Who Has The Remote? has chosen The Past, Behind the Candelabra, and Inside Llewyn Davis as the Top 3 most highly-anticipated films at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
