A regular at the Cannes Film Festival, Marion Cotillard opened the ceremonies last year with Arnaud Desplechin’s excellent Ismael’s Ghosts, and now she’s back this year with a new drama. Angel Face (aka Gueule d’ange) premieres in the Un Certain Regard section followed by a late-May release in France, and now the first trailer has arrived.
The feature debut of Vanessa Filho (who wrote the script alongside Diastème and François Pirot), the drama follows Cotillard as Marlene, a woman who abandons her daughter after a one-night stand and so her daughter fights to get her back. Also starring Alban Lenoir, Amélie Daure, Ayline Etaix, and Stéphane Rideau, see the trailer (sorry, no subtitles yet) and poster below.
Angel Face will premiere at Cannes in the Un Certain Regard section and opens in France on May 23.
