The selection of the 2021 Deauville festival: Stillwater, Pig (with Nicolas Cage), The Card Counter, Red Rocket …

The latest films by Sean Penn, Paul Schrader and Tom McCarthy will notably be shown.

The organizers of the Deauville festival, dedicated to American cinema, have just unveiled the selection for the 47th edition, which will be held from September 3 to 12. “This 2021 selection reflects the ups and downs of time and the legitimate and growing concern of filmmakers, explained its director Bruno Barde. This competition is crossed by laughter, fear, violence, voyeurism, self-quest, sensuality, and sometimes noble feelings, all reflecting the genre and emotions of today. “

Stillwater, by Tom McCarthy will open the festivities, and it will not be the only feature film unveiled in July at the Cannes film festival to be shown to the public, who will also be able to discover Blue Bayou, Red Rocket or Flag Day, Sean Penn’s latest feature film. The drama Pig, with Nicolas Cage as a truffle hunter, who has just been acclaimed in the United States, is also joining the competition. Here are the details.
