With the red carpets rolled up, the champagne corked and every available bed now vacant in the south of France, the Croisette is now back to being a hub of the bustling beach resort at least until next May when the frenzy of the Cannes Film Festival descends again. Over the weekend, the prizes were handed out by Steven Spielberg‘s jury and history was made as director Abdellatif Kechiche and the two lead actresses Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux shared the Palme d’Or for very well-received relationship drama “Blue Is The Warmest Color” (read our rave review here). But it was just one of many films that got honored, including Asghar Farhadi‘s “The Past,” the Coens’ “Inside Llewyn Davis,” Hirokazu Kore-Eda‘s “Like Father, Like Son” and many more titles including buzzed-about “Heli,” “Blue Ruin,” Jia Zhangke‘s “A Touch Of Sin,” and more.
But it’s one thing to read about these movies, and another to see them. Many of these movies won’t be landing in theaters until this fall, and some not until next year, which can be a long, long wait. To make things a bit easier, we’ve rounded up the clips and trailers for the award winners so you can get an early taste of what to expect from the movies that made waves at Cannes. So sit back, and watch below….
