There is a lot to look forward to at the movies in 2017, with both the multiplex and arthouse promising some real treats. And one movie that has already caught our eye is Arnaud Desplechin‘s “Ismaël’s Ghosts.”
The director behind “Kings And Queen” and “A Christmas Tale” is back with Mathieu Amalric, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marion Cotillard, and Louis Garrel leading his cast in a movie about a filmmaker who returns home in the midst of a personal crisis. Here’s the synopsis:
Ismaël Vuillard makes films. He is in the middle of one about Ivan, an atypical diplomat inspired by his brother. Along with Bloom, his master and father-in-law, Ismaël still mourns the death of Carlotta, twenty years earlier. Yet he has started his life over again with Sylvia. Sylvia is his light. Then Carlotta returns from the dead. Sylvia runs away. Ismaël rejects Carlotta. Driven mad by these ordeals, he abandons the shoot for his family home in Roubaix. There, he lives as a recluse, besieged by his ghosts.
You can probably put a pretty good bet on this one being ready for Cannes. Check out the first look image below.
