CANNES DISPATCH 4
Cate Blanchett is in Cannes for the world premiere of The New Boy, from Caméra d’Or winning director Warwick Thornton (Samson and Delilah), in which she stars and also serves as a producer under her production company, Dirty Films.

The film is inspired by Thornton’s own experience of growing up as an Aboriginal boy in a Christian boarding school. Set in rural South Australia in the 1940s, the story centres around a 9-year-old Aboriginal orphan boy (Aswan Reid) who catches the attention of Sister Eileen (Blanchett), who with fellow nun (Deborah Mailman), take an interest in the unusual boy and the mysterious occurrences as he arrives.

Cate Blanchett is joined by cast members Aswan Reid, Deborah Mailman, Wayne Blair and director Warwick Thornton, moments before they attended the film’s world premiere at the 76th Cannes Film Festival.
