div align=”justify”>2016, the year of Kristen Stewart with five movies announced including Woody Allen’s new one, opening the Cannes Film Festival. Choices that say who the American actress and Chanel muse is. A young woman who – from look to sexuality – masters the codes of her time and knows how to plays with them without limiting herself by doing so.
Kristen Stewart knows what she wants: to not be bored and for no one to fuck with her. She don’t say it that way, but still said it. As her romance with the singer Soko fills the columns of the tabloids, she’s in a very alert mood. It’s 10am in Los Angeles, 7pm in Paris, the voice of the very beautiful Chanel muse turns the phone call into some bumpy ride. A rough journey, that’s worth the effort. Kristen Stewart is rock’n’roll. Smart, clear-headed, wild, she acts like she breathes. In the short film ‘Once and Forever’, real-fake shooting done in 2015 by Karl Lagerfeld, she was a young bratty actress portraying Gabrielle Chanel. Muse of the fashion designer since already two years, Kristen has the (pretty) world at her feet. Woody Allen gave her the main feminine role in ‘Café Society’, which will open the Cannes Film Festival. Olivier Assayas shot her in ‘Personal Shopper’, two years after ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’, which led her, big first, to win the César for Best Supporting Actress. Twilight is far behind. The baby star has become an American figure that we love, an arty muse who plays the game. Her own.
Woody Allen’s latest film, Cafe Society, will be featured during the Opening Night Gala of the 2016 Seattle International Film Festival.
Cafe Society stars Jesse Eisenberg as a young man who arrives in Hollywood from New York during the 1930s and finds himself swept up in the cafe society of the age. Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell, Parker Posey and Blake Lively also star.
“Woody Allen delivers a delightful, vibrant and entertaining tale that continues to expand his repertory of acting talent. Combining the power of SIFF, which boasts the largest audience of any film festival in the country, with an emerging Seattle-based film distribution powerhouse that firmly believes in the theatrical experience, along with one of our most acclaimed directors, is a perfect match,” said festival director Carl Spence.
Cafe Society will have its premiere at the Cannes International Film Festival in May.
The film is being distributed by Amazon. The Seattle-based company has six titles at the festival, including Author: The JT LeRoy Story, The Dressmaker and Gleason.
The 42nd Seattle International Film Festival will run from May 19 to June 12.

The Hollywood Reporter : Just hours after learning that five of its films will play the Cannes Film Festival, Roy Price’s Amazon Studios revealed in Las Vegas that the streaming service is teaming with Lionsgate to release Woody Allen’s Cafe Society — which opens the festival — in theaters in August.
Price, speaking at CinemaCon, also made it clear the streaming service will give most of its original movies a proper theatrical release, unlike rival Netflix.
“A good robust theatrical run is good for everyone,” Price told the crowd, prompting several rounds of applause. “Therefore, almost all of our films will have full theatrical releases. Our goals are aligned with exhibition.”
Amazon Studios marketing Bob Berney led the lunch presentation. It’s a coup that Amazon was part of the official program at CinemaCon, considering many exhibitors have been leery about Netflix and Amazon’s move into the original movie business. However, Amazon has quickly decided that it’s better for their films to play first in theaters and honor the 90-day window before making them available to Amazon Prime customers. Otherwise, most theaters will refuse to play the movies at all.
The film tells the story of a young man who arrives in Hollywood during the 1930s hoping to work in the film industry, falls in love, and finds himself swept up in the vibrant café society that defined the spirit of the age.
Café Society features two rising stars from Hollywood’s up-and-coming generation, Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg alongside a stellar cast of acclaimed actors including Blake Lively, Parker Posey and Steve Carell. Stewart climbed the Red Carpet Steps at Cannes in 2012 for On the Road by Walter Salles and then in 2014 for Olivier Assayas’s Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a César. Jesse Eisenberg starred in Louder than Bombs by Joachim Trier, In Competition last year.
Woody Allen also joined forces with Vittorio Storaro for the film. The eminent director of photography was a member of the Feature Film jury in 1991 and is a three-time Oscar winner for Apocalypse Now by Francis Ford Coppola in 1980, Reds by Warren Beatty in 1982, and The Last Emperor by Bernardo Bertolucci in 1988.
From Manhattan in 1979 to Irrational Man in 2015, this will be the fourteenth Out of Competition selection at Cannes for the American director, screenwriter, actor, writer and comedian. […]
Café Society was produced by Letty Aronson (Gravier Productions), Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson, as a co-production with Helen Robin (Perdido Productions). Executive producers were Ronald L. Chez, Adam B. Stern and Marc I. Stern. The film was sold by FilmNation Entertainment and distributed on French territory by Mars Films.
In France, its release in cinemas is scheduled to coincide with the official opening of the Festival de Cannes on Wednesday 11 May, 2016.
The opening ceremony, hosted by Laurent Lafitte, will be broadcast by Canal +.
The 69th Festival International du Film de Cannes will take place between 11 and 22 May, 2016. The Competition Jury will be presided over by George Miller, and the Official Selection titles are due to be announced on 14 April.
