The Cannes Film Festival this year will be under the sign of Marilyn Monroe. The actress died exactly 50 years ago in 1962. She is the protagonist of this year’s poster, which anticipates the 65th edition of the film festival. This will be taking place May 16 to 27 and will have Nanni Moretti as jury president.
Marilyn Monroe is an icon of glamor of Cannes. “At 50 years after her death, Marilyn is one of the greatest figures in the world of cinema. An icon of immortality. Her grace and power of seduction is still entirely relevant today. ”
A figure so unique, no one had dared to impersonate Monroe on the big screen, until the arrival of Michelle Williams , who was lowered into the well in the movie “My Week With Marilyn”. Williams won the award as Best Actress in the Independent Spirit Awards.
