The Open Reel, an international sales agent, will be screening this new film Grand Street in Cannes.

Grand Street

A chance encounter between an out-of-work film executive and an aspiring writer leads to a 24 hour Manhattan odyssey through an underworld and back. Driven by hopes and dreams, steered by selfish yearnings and vague promises, Camilla and Amo's journey is mythic and fated with irreparable consequences for both. A dark romance set in New York City. A debut to the long feature film and starring, among others, Charlotte Riley , Tom Byam Shaw, Michael Wincott, Mía Maestro and Kelly McGillis , Grand Street is set in Manhattan, where the slice of New York lives spread out. The 24 hours in the city and the selfish love, work of the people in it create a drama. The romance of Camilla and Amos itself represents the dry urban life.
