The Cannes Film Festival always attracts some of the biggest names in Hollywood to the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès — Brad Pitt! Kristen Stewart! Robert Pattinson! — but this year we’ve been especially excited by the number of Australian stars at the event. The Sapphires had the film industry buzzing over the weekend after the screening received a standing ovation, and as a result the world is discovering our home-grown talent like Deborah Mailman and Jessica Mauboy. Lawless also had a strong Aussie presence when stars Mia Wasikowska and Guy Pearce walked the red carpet with co-writer Nick Cave. Kylie Minogue and Nicole Kidman have also just promoted their respective movies — let’s take a moment to celebrate our stars stealing the spotlight in Cannes.
