PEOPLE – Tilda Swinton is not only a great actress, she is also a great fashion lover. This Friday, May 20, the movie star proved it again on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival, on the occasion of the screening of the new film by George Miller.
Featured in Three thousand years waiting for youthe youngest of the Australian director of madmax, the Briton played the card of sobriety. She was dressed in a long, form-fitting navy blue dress with long sleeves. His particuliarity? A round neck on which a set of sparkling blue jewels were integrated.
On the hairstyle side, a classic of the actress: shorn on the sides, her peroxidized blond hair was, on top, raised back.
Tilda Swinton is a regular at the Croisette. Last year, we saw her twice. A first visit to the red carpet for the screening of Wes Anderson’s latest film, The French Dispatch. Then, a second. It was at the time of the presentation of Memoria by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, jury prize tied with Ahed’s knee by Nadav Lapid.
This Friday, she did not lack praise for George Miller, with whom she was shooting for the first time. “It was a dream to work with him. He is a genius who knows how to tell stories. It was a real masterclass, as it would have been with Hitchcock. He understands the cinema, she confided to the microphones of France Télévisions. But, you know, I still have a lot to learn. I am an eternal student.”
“Tilda is a goddess”
“It was both ways, replied the Australian filmmaker, whom we had not met at Cannes since 2015. I learned so much thanks to Tilda.” “Tilda is a goddess”, even added Idris Elba, also in the cast in one of the title roles.
The first pictures of Three thousand years waiting for you promise a mix of action, fantasy and fantasy. The pitch is intriguing. It is that of a woman played by the 61-year-old British actress who, one day, is asked to make three wishes, three wishes that only a genius, played by Idris Elba, can grant.
“This is the first time that the public will discover the film, underlined George Miller. Seeing it screened in this room, in this city, is wonderful, even if I’m a little anxious because I don’t know how people will react. The French will be able to find it in theaters from August 25.
