Babel has its eye on the prize, the Palme d’Or, at the Cannes Film Festival this year, as it has been quite a hit. An e-mail from Brad was read before the movie (squelching all rumors of him showing up at Cannes for good):
“With the imminent arrival of the newest addition to our family, I am unable to join Alejandro, Cate, Gael and the rest of the cast and crew in introducing the film,” he wrote, adding that he was “tremendously proud” of Babel.
And this is what Cate Blanchett said about working with Brad:
“In terms of working with Brad, it’s like chocolate. He’s glorious and wonderful and I really wanted to work with him for a long time.”
Mmmm – Chocolate. I bet she really wanted to work with him. What actress in her right mind wouldn’t??
[Edit - here is a great review of Babel from Monsters and Critics - thanks for sending JLS!!]
