Cannes Film Festival live updates: Urvashi Rautela is mistaken for Aishwarya Rai by paparazzi

    Celebs attend Monster screening

    On Wednesday night, the attention had turned to a film in competition at the festival, Monster, from Hirokazu Kore-eda, where glamourous looks from stars like Ethan Hawke, Gemma Chan, model Sara Sampaio and EGOT-winner Viola Davis abounded. 

    Monster follows Saori (Ando Sakura), a take-no-prisoners widowed mother, who is now bringing up her son Minato (Kurokawa Soya) who is weathering tough times in his elementary school. Mom learns that son’s odd behaviour may have to do with his teach, who Minato says hit him. The pic is told in Rashoman style from several different points of view, including that of the teacher, Hori (Nagayama Eita), Minato and his friend Yori (Hiiragi Hinata), as per Deadline.

    The film is Hirokazu Kore-Eda’s ninth movie overall at the fest (counting two that appeared in Un Certain Regard). Monster is his first movie since his 1995 debut feature Maborosi that the director has not had a screenplay credit on.
