Tree Closing Cannes


Alas, not Tree of Life, Terrence Malick's elusive mindbender. This little bit of headline rope-a-dope is instead brought to you by The Tree, a French-Aussie co-production announced today as the Cannes Film Festival's closing-night film. Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg as a mother whose child thinks her late father talks to her via a tree, it will screen May 23, most likely following Doug Liman's stirring Palme D'or win. [indieWIRE]
