FRENCH FILM WINS BIG AT THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL!!! 


The French film "Entre les Murs" ("The Class") has won top honors at the Cannes Film Festival!

The film, which won the Palme d'Or, tells the tale about classroom life and uses real students and teachers at a junior high school.

Directed by Laurent Cantet ("Ressources humaines"), "Entre les Murs" is shot in a raw, improvisational style to chronicle the drama that unfolds over one school year.

FIRST LOOK: "AUSTRALIA" WITH NICOLE KIDMAN AND HUGH JACKMAN 


Nicole Kidman teamed up once again with her "Moulin Rouge" director, Baz Luhrmann, for the western epic, "Australia," co-starring Hugh Jackman.

The plot is interesting:

Luhrmann's film is set in northern Australia prior to World War II and centers on an English aristocrat (Kidman) who inherits a cattle station the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn stock-man (Jackman) to drive 2,000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country's most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier.


It's been a while since Nicole had a hit, either critical or commercial, so returning back to Luhrmann's arms maybe the key. Plus, I love Hugh Jackman! He's a great actor, and a sweet man in person.

Take a look at the new trailer of "Australia." The film opens November 14.
