Cannes Kicks Off With My Blueberry Nights


Today the Cannes Film Festival kicks off in France, and starting things off is Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai's first English-language film, My Blueberry Nights. The movie is about a lovelorn road trip and stars Jude Law, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman and... Norah Jones?

Yup, Norah Jones. Apparently, Kar Wai specifically sought out the musician for the starring role. More details if you

Variety has the scoop:

She admits she knew little about the director's work when she first met Wong over lunch in New York.

"I thought maybe he wanted music," she says. "And he asked if I wanted to act! I knew his reputation as a director was very unconventional and very different, and I knew what his movies looked like, and it just seemed like a really good time to say yes and try something different with somebody I trusted."

In "My Blueberry Nights," Jones is the central character, a young woman working her way across the country in the wake of a romantic breakup.

Jones goes on to gush that her costars were extra-supportive, knowing she was nervous, and treated her like their "little sister." I found these richly colorful stills from the film on RopeofSilicon and I must say this movie intrigues me, so I'll be scouring the Web for reviews as soon as Nights is screened. Oh, to be at Cannes!

Yeah, Chungking Express is good. I think In the Mood for Love is my favourite, though. And I'm really excited about My Blueberry Nights! The title is just yum and these beautiful colours make my heart weep with joy.

ILOVE Wong Kar Wai! Just needed to share. I'm sure Norah Jones will be amazing too, look at Chunking Express - Faye Wong was a popstar, not an actor when that was made - If you haven't seen it - BEST MOVIE EVER!!
