Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano's The Specials to close Cannes Film Festival
The 72nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival will run from May 14 to May 25
The French dramedy, The Specials, directed by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, will bring the curtains down at 2019 Cannes Film Festival. Featuring Vincent Cassel and Reda Kateb in the lead, the film is notable to have a cast of nonprofessional actors - autistic teens and social workers. The film elaborates on the themes of friendship and respect like the director duo's previous film The Intouchables.
The closing ceremony is scheduled on May 25 when the prestigious Palme d'Or. for which filmmakers Pedro Almodovar, Bong Joon-ho, Xavier Dolan and Celine Sciamma are competing for, will be announced. The last film, usually called Closing Film has been renamed this year as The Last Screening with an aim to better the profile of the final night.
The 72nd edition of the Cannes Film Festival will run from May 14 to 25 while The Specials will hit the theatres in France on October 19.
