Mexican actress Salma Hayek is among the stars walking the red carpet at the premiere of Matteo Garrone’s “Il Racconto Dei Raconti” (‘Tale of Tales’), in competition at the 68th Cannes Film Festival.
Italian director Matteo Garrone’s “Il Racconto Dei Raconti” (‘Tale of Tales’) received the red carpet treatment on Thursday (May 14) at the 68th Cannes Film Festival.
Stars including Salma Hayek and John C. Reilly arrived at the Palais des Festivals to walk the red carpet alongside other members of the ensemble cast.
Garrone’s ‘fairy tale for grown ups’ is based on three 17th Century stories by celebrated scribe Giambattista Basile, considered inspirations for many later fairy tales.
The film, Garrone’s first English language feature, marks a return to Cannes for the Italian who won the Grand Prix du Jury award in 2012 for his film “Reality.” “Tales of Tales” is one of 19 films in competition for the Palme d’Or prize that will be handed out on May 24.
