Cannes Directors’ Fortnight: Michael Cera Christmas Movie, Sundance Breakout ‘Good One’ and Sophie Fillières’ Posthumous Film Among Lineup

The Directors' Fortnight lineup includes a Michael Cera Christmas movie, Sundance breakout 'Good One' and more.

The 77th edition of Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight will kick off with “This Life of Mine,” a dramedy directed by Sophie Fillières, a renowned French filmmaker who died last year. The independent selection, which has recently gone through a rebranding and is now spearheaded by artistic director Julien Rejl, will close with another French film, Jean-Christophe Meurisse’s “Plastic Guns,” an offbeat crime comedy headlined by popular actor Jonathan Cohen. The other U.S. films slated for Directors’ Fortnight include two more debut features, Ryan J. Sloan’s “Gazer” and Carson Lund’s “Eephus,” along with Tyler Taormina’s “Christmas Eve in Miller’s Point” starring Michael Cera, Francesca Scorsese and Sawyer Spielberg.
