Julianne Moore and Natalie Portman star in the US filmmaker’s fourth Competition entry centring around an actress researching a couple’s controversial romance for a film adaptation. Haynes’ last Competition title, Wonderstruck, scored 2.7 back in 2017.

Also landing on the jury grid is Ramata-Toulaye Sy’s Banel & Adama, on a provisional 2.3. The French—Senegalese filmmaker’s debut, and the only debut in competition, scored seven twos and three threes, with two scores still oustanding.

Set in North Senegal, Banel & Adama follows a young couple who defy their family’s expectations to much disapproval.

Next up on the jury grid will be Karim Aïnouz’s Firebrand and Justine Triet’s Anatomy Of A Fall.
