Woody Allen’s new movie Cafe Society, starring Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Steve Carell, had its world premiere at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday. See a photo gallery below from the red carpet!
In the 1930s-set comedy, Eisenberg plays a New Yorker who ventures out to Hollywood to pursue a career in the film industry. Once there, he falls in love with Stewart’s character, a small-town girl working as a secretary for a big-shot agent (Carell). Prior to the film’s red carpet premiere, Allen attended a press conference along with cast members Eisenberg, Stewart, Blake Lively and Corey Stoll.
“I needed someone who could play an adorable little secretary from Nebraska,” the writer/director said of casting Stewart, who was sitting right beside him. He added, “Later in the movie you could see her in furs and jewels, and she would look just smashing and elegant.” Stewart noted, “I auditioned for this part, too,” adding that while taking on the role, “That tonal quality that’s so familiar and immediately recognizable [in Allen’s movies] just happens intrinsically.”
Cafe Society hits theaters July 15 in New York and Los Angeles, before opening nationwide on July 29. Check out photos below from the film’s red carpet premiere, press conference, and photocall at the Cannes Film Festival!
