Movie buffs of Atlanta and elsewhere – wherever you are – the cast and crew of the Western crime film “Lawless” assembled for the photocall and premiere viewing at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival on May 19, 2012 in Cannes, France.
Screenwriter, Director , and actors , Jason Clarke, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Dane DeHaan, and all donned their best at the Palais des Festivals…
Jessica Chastain wore a light cocoa colored sleeveless gown with a long, flowing train and plenty of metallic touches on the bodice to just below the hips, while her costar Mia Wasikowska wore a plum colored gown with a deep V-neckline and butterfly sleeves.
Earlier at the photocall Mia wore a very pretty printed dress in shades of pink and mauve that makes one think of Valentine’s Day wrapping paper or candy… Jessica felt like going a bit more formal and opted for a striped red, black and cream top with a black tulip skirt.
Model Bianca Balti’s floral gown with the asymmetrical length skirt and off-shoulder sleeves was breathtaking, as was the coral and seafoam green strapless dress worn by actress Berenice Bejo – truly gorgeous! The emerald and amethyst butterfly bracelet on Hofit Golan was unusual…
A bit about the film, Lawless is reportedly about a bootlegging gang in Depression-era Franklin County, Virginia, that is being threatened by the “authorities” who want a cut of their profits. (you mean like taxes? Hehe…)
Here’s some trivia on Lawless: originally called “The Wettest County in The World” then “The Promised Land” and then eventually to “Lawless!”
Lawless was filmed in the state of Georgia, beginning on February 28, 2011 in various locations near Atlanta, including Newnan, LaGrange and Carroll County’s McIntosh Park.
Also attending the Lawless premiere were Muriel Cousin and Stephane Guillon, Barbara Palvin (was that a Missoni?) and Lawless slide show y’all…(was he going solo?). Enjoy the
