Brady Corbet and Moviefone's Charles Gant at Cannes Film Festival 2010Yesterday afternoon, I dropped in on the Style Star beach lounge to meet Brady Corbet, star of Two Gates Of Sleep, which is playing in the Director's Fortnight strand of Cannes. You might remember him as the kid in the somewhat ill-fated Thunderbirds movie, anyway, he's a big world-cinema fan and so is attending Cannes for the whole festival, but he hasn't caught as many movies as he'd wish as he's been busy with meetings for a film he's trying to make, which is set in France in 1919.

After meeting Corbet, I joined a long queue to see Stones In Exile, a documentary about the Rolling Stones recording their album Exile On Main Street in the south of France in 1972. I was one of the last few people who made it into the packed cinema, where Mick Jagger introduced the film with a droll speech in French and English. He was reading from a piece of paper, but it was still impressive. So too is the film, which uses a treasure trove of still photographs taken from that time, with voiceover reflections of the particpants, as well as archive film footage.
