The director’s words | May December: the film with Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore at Cannes

Before landing in Cannes, Todd Haynes stopped to talk about his new work, to the microphones of The Hollywood Reporter, explaining how the new project was born.

The director then focused on the importance that Cannes has for him:

I love the Venice Film Festival and have had great premieres and history in Venice, but Cannes is Cannes. I’ll be in France with my retrospective, which is a complete retrospective of my career, everything I’ve done will be shown. Then you get to show May December, and this would only be possible if you opt for Cannes.
