From London Evening Standard:

Yes we Cannes: British talent takes a starring role

Film festivals, like the Olympics, tend to arouse partisan feelings. And patriotic Brits can already count this year’s Cannes, which begins next week, a success. True, only one UK film is actually in the running for a prize. On the other hand, three British movies will be shown at special screenings and a high proportion of the festival’s must-see films place British actors centre stage.

Cosmopolis:

Robert Pattinson, probably the most famous cutie on the planet thanks to the Twilight vampire franchise, is about to become noteworthy in an entirely new way thanks to Cronenberg’s Palme d’Or contender. An adaptation of Don DeLillo’s dystopian novel, this entry from the Canadian auteur sees Pattinson as a bored, petulant, limousine-loving billionaire, gliding through Manhattan in search of kicks and a haircut. Sex. Violence. Horror (the rat is a unit of currency in this un-brave new world). If Pattinson can hold his own alongside edgy talents like Samantha Morton, he’ll not only impress art-house audiences but prove that his charisma has real bite.
