The Ad Astra director returns with his feet on the ground (and on the red carpet) for this film inspired by his own youth.
One of the competition’s most anticipated films was shown tonight at the Cannes Film Festival: Armageddon Timeof James Gray. The director of Lost City of Z and D’Ad Astra it tells a personal story, that of a young boy (Michael Banks Repeta) evolving in the artistic milieu of Queens, New York. There he will cross paths with several characters embodied by Anne Hathaway, Anthony Hopkins or Jeremy Strong, who will have a more or less good influence on him. If at 84, Hopkins did not make the trip, the rest of the cast climbed the steps alongside the filmmaker, who admitted in the summer of 2020, just before shooting it, to have been inspired by the cult works of Federico Fellini and François Truffaut for this project which was close to his heart: “Amarcord and Les 400 coups are certainly films that I thought about a lot and Armageddon Time is in line with the spirit of these works – it is a very open, warm, human film, which makes you want to love the people who inhabit it.”
This film does not yet have a release date.
