A trailer from Jean-Pierre Jeunet's "The Young and Prodigious Spivet" has emerged, and it seems seems that the director is once again aiming to capture the lovely and curious quirks of an introspective mind, as he did with "Amelie." Adapted from Reif Larsen's debut novel, "The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet," it follows a brilliant 12-year-old cartographer who hitchhikes alone from his home in Montana to Washington D.C. to accept a prestigious award. The text was praised for its extensive use of maps, charts, sketches, and images accompanying the text--a visual device that the film seems to employ as well. The movie stars Helena Bonham Carter, Kathy Bates, Dominique Pinon, and newcomer Kyle Catlett as the young Spivet. 

Then two trailers from Cannes give a glimpse of two competition features on the Riviera. Arnaud Desplechin's talky "Jimmy P," stars Benicio del Toro as a Native American WWII veteran whose diagnosis of schizophrenia is examined by a French psychoanalyst (Mathieu Amalric). The two men heal each other. The film is adapted from George Devereux's non-fiction book, "Reality and Dream: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian." 

The next trailer from Cannes is for Jia Zhangke's "A Touch of Sin," which intertwines four different stories about violence in China. Zhangke is competing for the Palme d'Or at the festival. "A Touch of Sin" is already becoming a controversial film, depicting the darker side of Chinese society. (More from Tom Christie here.)
