Cannes themes

May 23, 2012

Each year in Cannes a loose theme emerges amongst the films. Last year it was pedophiles, rape, grueling violence and dogs.

Here’s one of the themes I’ve noticed this year:

Paul Ridd lookalikes
Picturehouses programmer and acquisitions coordinator, Paul Ridd, seems to have several doppelgangers appearing in some of this years films. Here are some examples below:

Paul as a young child: Jared Gilman who plays Sam in ‘Moonrise Kingdom’

Paul in his twenties: Cillian Murphy acts as Kasia’s boyfriend in ‘Broken’

Paul in his thirties: Sam Riley, Sal Paradise from ‘On the Road’
