The Cannes Film Festival begins later this week, which means new images are popping up online. Among them are new images from Clouds of Sils Maria, the latest from Oliver Assayas (Summer Hours). Per The Playlist, “the film follows a middle aged actress who decides to star in a new version of the play that made her famous years ago, but this time taking the older leading lady part. However, when she meets her co-star, a younger actress in the role that made her name, things take an interesting turn.” The movie stars Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, Chloë Grace Moretz, Johnny Flynn, and Brady Corbet. Clouds of Sils Maria will play on the last day of the Cannes Film Festival.
Hit the jump to check out the Clouds of Sils Maria images along with the first images from Brooklyn starring Saoirse Ronan and from Strangerland starring Nicole Kidman. The 2014 Cannes Film Festival runs from May 15 – 25th.

While Clouds of Sils Maria is actually playing in the festival, Cannes is also a place for packaging pictures and selling distribution rights. While Clouds of Sils Maria has U.S. distribution through IFC Films, the dramas Brooklyn and Strangerland are still looking for distributors.

Brooklyn stars Saorise Ronan as Eilis, “who moves from a small town in 1950s Ireland to Brooklyn, where, unlike at home, she has the opportunity for work, for a future and for love, in the form of Italian-American Tony (Emory Cohen). When a family tragedy brings her back to Ireland, she finds herself absorbed into her old community, with Jim (Domhnall Gleeson) courting her. As she repeatedly postpones her return to America, Eilis finds herself confronting a choice between two men and two countries.” The talented cast also includes Jim Broadbent and Julie Waters.
