Jessica Chastain's a foxy lady on festival red carpet
Published 20/05/2014 | 02:30
Jessica Chastain came to 'The Rover' premiere in a flowing purple gown, but it flowed more than she liked in the wind. She had to use her hands to hold down the one-shoulder dress, with its leg-baring slit, to prevent it from becoming even more revealing.
Singer Cheryl Cole faced similar struggles with her sumptuous black dress, which was above the knee in front with a long train attached.
The festival was abuzz with praise for Steve Carell, and Bennett Miller's 'Foxcatcher' which premiered last night to largely rave reviews.
'Foxcatcher' is based on the true story of Olympic gold medallist wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum). To step out from the shadow of his brother and fellow Olympian, Dave (Mark Ruffalo), Schultz moves into a wealthy benefactor's Pennsylvania estate. His relationship with millionaire John du Pont, whom Carell plays with a prosthetic nose, develops into a tragic psychological drama.
Anticipation for the film increased after its release was postponed from last year's awards season so that Miller could spend more time finishing it. Sony Pictures Classics plans to release the film in November.
