MOVIE | Kinds of Kindness premieres at Cannes

Kinds of Kindness – Coming off four Academy Awards wins for POOR THINGS, Searchlight Pictures is pleased to announce that Yorgos Lanthimos’ next film, KINDS OF KINDNESS, will have its World Premiere at the 77th Edition of the Cannes Film Festival.

KINDS OF KINDNESS is a triptych fable, following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader.

KINDS OF KINDESS marks Yorgos Lanthimos and screenwriter Efthimis Filippou’s fourth in-competition film at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Debuting fifteen years ago in 2009, Lanthimos first garnered international attention with DOGTOOTH, the winner of the Un Certain Regard Prize at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival.

He followed this in 2015 by premiering his first English-language film, THE LOBSTER. The film went on to win the festival’s Jury Prize.

Lanthimos’ last appearance at Cannes was in 2017, where he premiered THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER, which won the Best Screenplay prize.

Joining Lanthimos in Cannes will be the all-star ensemble cast including Emma Stone, Jesse Plemons, Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley, Hong Chau, Joe Alwyn, Mamoudou Athie, Hunter Schafer, plus others from the filmmaking team. 

Searchlight Pictures presents, KINDS OF KINDNESS, directed by Academy Award® Nominee Yorgos Lanthimos. Two-time Academy Award® Winner Emma Stone stars alongside Academy Award® Nominee Jesse Plemons, Academy Award® Nominee Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley, Academy Award® Nominee Hong Chau, Joe Alwyn, Mamoudou Athie and Hunter Schafer.
