drama Armageddon Time Cannes Gowns, Round 4 – cpn

Anne Hathaway is in Cannes to attend the premiere of James Gray’s memoir drama Armageddon Time. Juror Rebecca Hall and Cannes mainstay Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai also walked the red carpet. Sheila Atim, who you’ll recall just won the Olivier Award, is having a very good year. She was this year’s actress honorary at Chopard’s annual Cannes ceremony which spotlights one male and one female star each year (Jack Lowden was the male winner this year). The four most recent actress winners were Anya Taylor-Joy (2017), Elizabeth Debicki (2018), Florence Pugh (2019), Jessie Buckley (2021) so that’s very good company to be in. Atim is onscreens now in a small role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and supports Viola Davis later this year in The Woman King.

The Guardian though didn’t much like it describing it as “slightly laborious and self-consciously acted”
