Nicole Kidman in Cannes Film Festival Opens

16 May 2017

Actress Nicole Kidman is the undisputed queen of the Cannes film festival which opens Wednesday in the French Riviera resort, starring in three of its most eagerly-awaited films. The Australian is in two in the running for its top prize and plays a fashion and music movie in "How to Talk to Girls at Parties" and governess of a Mississippi girls school in "The Beguiled”. She also teams up with the Irish actor Colin Farrell in "The Killing of a Sacred Deer", the story of a surgeon who gets disastrously drawn into the life of a dysfunctional family. The 49-year-old has never won a prize at Cannes but she has long been a festival favourite.
