Cannes Film Festival Adds Six Features

In a couple of days, I'll be flying to Nice & Cannes during the Cannes Film Festival that kicks off today. As a fashion blogger, i'm not only curious which fashion forward looks will hit the red carpet in the French Riviera, but also about the selection of movies that will showcase during that time. 
Of the 19 directors competing for the crowning Palme d'Or award, no fewer than 13 have been nominated before. Here's a top 3 of movies from Cannes Official Selection I would definitely love to see this year:

A look at the life of legendary French designer Yves Saint Laurent from the beginning of his career in 1958 when he met his lover and business partner, Pierre Berge.

This film is produced by the brothers Dardenne (Belgium pride). They write, produce and direct all their films together.I like a lot of their movies, because every single one is intensively naturalistic, documentarylike, which makes it so close to reality and keeps the audience enraptured. This movie is about a woman (Marion Cotillard) who has only one weekend to visit her colleagues and - with the help of her husband - convince them to sacrifice their annual bonuses so she can keep her job.

I always been a huge admirer of Xavier Dolan his movies. He is very picky in the selection of his actors. In this movie two actresses who each impressed me in a previous Xavier Dolan film, Anne Dorval and Suzanne Clément, are taking the lead. 
His fifth-feature film is about a widowed single mom that finds herself burdened with the full-time custody of her explosive 15-year-old ADHD son. As they try to make ends meet and struggle with their impetuous and unpredictable ménage, the new girl across the street, Kyla, benevolently offers needed support. Together, they find a new sense of balance, and hope is regained.
