Roman Polanski’s psychological thriller Based on a True Story (D’apres une histoire vraie) starring Eva Green, Emmanuelle Seigner and Vincent Perez has been selected to be part of the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival! The film, co-written by French director Olivier Assayas (Clouds of Sils Maria, Personal Shopper) with Mr. Polanski will be screened Out of Competition.

Based on a True Story tells the story of the toxic relationship between a writer (Emmanuelle), whose life and mind are endangered by an obsessive admirer (Eva) as she goes through a tough period after the release of her latest book. The film is an adaptation of Delphine de Vigan’s critically acclaimed novel (winner of Prix Renaudot and Goncourt des Lyceens) of the same name.

Mars Distribution will release the film in France with Sony Pictures Classics obtaining its North American distribution, while Lionsgate will release it internationally. The annual Cannes Film Festival runs from May 17 to May 28, 2017.

    Great news! Fingers crossed 🙂 A pity it is out of the competition but still – good news and hope it will be appreciated 🙂 and I hope american so called “system of justice’ will finally leave Polański alone.
