The 2015 Cannes Film Festival has a veritable who's-who on its jury this year, headed up by brother directors Joel and Ethan Coen.

The 2015 iteration of the Cannes Film Festival, held in France, will kick off on 13 May. The festival’s presiding jury, led by Joel and Ethan Coen, will also feature Rossy de Palma, Sophie Marceau, Sienna Miller, Rokia Traoré, Guillermo del Toro, Xavier Dolan, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Films being shown at Cannes this year include Todd Haynes’ Carol (a Patricia Highsmith adaptation), Gus Van Sant’s The Sea of Trees, and Gaspar Noé‘s controversial Love. (For more on said controversy, read here and, fair warning, it’s NSFW.)
