Since French director Claude Miller’s death earlier this month, his last film, Thérèse Desqueyroux, has been tipped to be getting a special berth at Cannes. Organizers now confirm it will close the festival on May 27. The film stars Audrey Tautou, Gilles Lellouche and Anaïs Demoustier. It’s an adaptation of François Mauriac’s novel of the same name. Over Miller’s career, he had 5 films in selection in Cannes. Today the festival said, “By dedicating the closing night to him, the Festival de Cannes, along with his family, friends, producers, and distributors, is very pleased to pay tribute to the memory of Claude Miller.”
