The New Boy at Cannes 2023

Cate Blanchett is back in Cannes this year. The New Boy directed by Warwick Thornton will play at the Un Certain Regard section. The festival will run from 16th-27th of May 2023. Cate is a producer and also stars in the movie as a renegade nun.

Set in 1940s Australia, The New Boy is the story of a nine-year-old Aboriginal orphan boy (Aswan Reid) who arrives in the dead of night at a remote monastery, run by a renegade nun (Cate Blanchett), where his presence disturbs the delicately balanced world in this story of spiritual struggle and the cost of survival. Also stars Deborah Mailman and Wayne Blair, alongside new faces Shane Brady, Tyrique Brady, Laiken Woolmington, Kailem Miller, Kyle Miller, Tyzailin Roderick and Tyler Spencer.
