She made her breakthrough as Britain's flame-haired monarch Elizabeth I in the 1998 biopic, earning her the first of her six Oscar nominations.

"Angel Face", a film invested and co-produced by Vietnamese artist Ly Nha Ky, will vie for prize at the Cannes Film Festival which will take place in France from May 8-19.

Cannes, a feverish pageant of celebrity and cinema, is trying to both rigorously guard tradition and adapt to fast-changing times.

Morning press shows ahead of Competition films several hours ahead of their red-carpet galas have been done away with while protracted post-screening embargoes have been imposed on reviews of films that screen late night.

The film is among 15 projects selected by the festival's organising board to be introduced in "The Altelier" programme in the Cannes Film Festival.

Ireland's Sam Bennett , who Viviani later accused of forcing him towards the barriers, ended third on the same time. Viviani overcame route "beer Sheva - Eilat" in 5 hours 2 minutes 9 seconds.

Moreover, the nine-member Competition jury of 71st Cannes Film Festival is not only headed by Cate Blanchett, it also has four other women on it - filmmaker Ava Duvernay, actresses Lea Seydoux and Kristen Stewart and Burundian author and composer Khadja Nin.

Others have pressured Cannes to confront its role in the scandal.

Labaki, one of Lebanon's most famed filmmakers whose Where Do We Go Now? played in Cannes' Un Certain Regard section, has spent the last two years making Capernaum, a realistic rendering of the lives of Syrian migrant children, with nonprofessional actors playing version of themselves. Chastain, while not connected with any film playing at the festival this year, will in a way still be influencing the conversation.

Besides, "Glorious Ashes" directed by renowned Vietnamese director Bui Thac Chuyen will be present at the most prestigious film festival in the world. "They will be walking the red carpet and we will be there to support them", she said. The festival has asked that Russian theatre and film director Kirill Serebrennikov and Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi be given permission to attend the premieres of their films, but that appears unlikely. The Spanish language family drama Everybody Knows starring Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, opening the fest, is one of them.

The 28-year-old has always been a darling of Cannes, appearing in the main competition in "On the Road" by Walter Salles in 2012 and Olivier Assayas' "Clouds of Sils Maria" and Woody Allen's "Cafe Society" in 2014. "But I've never been on the red carpet at the Grand Palais with a Wookiee and some Stormtroopers".
