Official selection 2011 unveiled

After weeks of speculation (perhaps less than previous years), the Festival de Cannes announced the official selection at an event in Paris on April 13. As usual, there are a few that will cause a lot of talk. “The Conquest”, based on French President Sarkozy’s rise to power springs to mind. “The Tree of Life” which comes with almost unbearable expectations. The fact that Gus Van Sant finds himself in the Certain Regard sidebar rather than the official selection and the separate return of Lars Von Trier and Mel Gibson (one conference worth catching).
