Beauty And The Beast Lea Seydoux
Yeah, we know, the whole fairy-tale-reimagining thing is getting pretty played out and boring, but it's not going to end anytime soon. Disney already has "Maleficent," "Cinderella" and yes, even a live action redo of "Beauty And The Beast" in the pipeline, but our attention is focused overseas where Christoph Gans will hopefully shake up this latest cinematic trend with his own take on the latter bedtime tale.

While Disney currently has plans to reimagine their own "Beauty And The Beast," it's probably safe to say that Christophe Gans -- the guy behind "Brotherhood Of The Wolf" and "Silent Hill" -- will have a more interesting take. Now in post-production, Pathé International took to the movie market at the recently wrapped Cannes Film Festival and brought with them a first look that positively glows with romance, or cannibalism.

Abdellatif Kechiche's 'Blue is the Warmest Color', Lea Seydoux
Ten days or so of the annual cinephile orgy that is the Cannes Film Festival draws to a close today, and Steven Spielberg and his jury have decided which movies were the best of heap on the Croisette. It was an interesting year at Cannes in 2013, with American films putting forth a strong showing in all categories, while auteurs ranging from Claire Denis to Jim Jarmusch to Roman Polanski and more all brought their latest works.

Why do we watch movies? No, really, why is it? As close an answer as we’ve ever come to for our own, fairly evident obsession with what we consider the greatest storytelling medium humankind has ever developed, is well, that life is short. Bear with us a second on this: basically to submerge yourself in a story well-told is a way to live out other lives within your own, and through those complex and magical processes of identification, to breathe and dream and feel things that your own short span might otherwise never afford you.

Abdellatif Kechiche's 'Blue is the Warmest Color', Lea Seydoux
If you have a thing for Lea Seydoux, this was a good year to be at the Cannes Film Festival. The French actress spends most of "Grand Central" (read our review here) either naked or strutting around noticeably bra-less in a jean shorts and a one piece body suit. And then there's "Blue Is The Warmest Color," an epic three hour lesbian love story with love scenes that are already creating chatter, with Jeffrey Wells noting that one sequence in particular earned applause during the movie. Damn.

GRAND CENTRAL BY REBECCA ZLOTOWSKI, Lea Seydoux, Tahar Rahim
Director Rebecca Zlotowski scored big in 2010 when her debut feature “Belle Epine” (aka “Dear Prudence”) won the Prix Louis Delluc for best first film, and snagged star Léa Seydoux a nomination for Most Promising Actress at the Césars. Three years on and Seydoux has certainly made good on that promise, with her profile rising ever higher -- in this year’s Cannes she’s one of a select number of actors to have two films in the Official Selection, one of them being her reteaming with Zlotowski on “Grand Central” with Kechiche’s ”Blue is the Warmest Color” in competition being the other.

GRAND CENTRAL BY REBECCA ZLOTOWSKI, Lea Seydoux, Tahar Rahim
It looks like Marion Cotillard -- featuring in both James Gray's "The Immigrant" and Guillaume Canet's "Blood Ties" -- won't be the only one at Cannes this year with two movies to show off. Fellow French actress Lea Seydoux will strut her stuff in the main competition with the three hour (!) lesbian romance drama "Blue Is The Warmest Color." But flying a bit more under the radar on the Un Certain Regard slate is "Grand Central," where she'll co-star opposite "A Prophet" star Tahar Rahim, in another romance that is throwing off some sparks.

Things are going very well for Lea Seydoux. After having a very short appearance in the opening of Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” -- she played one of the daughters of the French farmer Christoph Waltz interrogates -- Seydoux appeared in the films of Ridley Scott and Woody Allen, and she recently added Wes Anderson to her list of auteurs with her role in his upcoming “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (and as the star of the Anderson and Roman Coppola co-directed Prada ads). The French actress, however, hasn’t forgotten about her homeland as she’s set to join Benoit Jacquot’s “Three Hearts” ("Trois coeurs") alongside two other French stars.

So remember last week when Fox Searchlight picked up Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and dropped the official synopsis, along with a staggering list of cast members? It seems they left one out: Lea Seydoux.

Ah, to be young, beautiful, French and caught between two persistent and handsome men. That's the basic premise of Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola's obviously whimsical series of shorts for Prada, and the third and final installment has now arrived bringing the story to a close.
