I can't really do a Cannes edition of Trailer Trashed and not start with the hyped-up, "definitely next year's Oscar winner" Carol. Although a trailer hasn't appeared online yet, we do have a select few snippets of the tale of a love affair between a married woman and a young shop girl (played by Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara respectively). It's not surprising that Blanchett continues to wow with both her performances and her acting choices. Here's to another year of Blanchett promoting the value of exceptional female characters everywhere.

Onto the weirder parts of the festival with The Tale Of Tales. Based on folk tales published in the 16th century, here is a mad, visually insane world in which you will probably delight in the horrors, but pray you never have to experience them. Think less Disney and more Pans Labyrinth.

There is always a film that gets booed. There's probably always more than one, but of course the press only picks up on the highest profile of said booed films. This year's victor? The Sea Of Trees. The Guardian called it a "middleweight syrupy-commercial mode of film-making." Last year's monumental boo-fest was given to Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River, and well, audiences hardly flocked to the cinema to check it out. This short clip will tell you that the score could be amazing but the story... it certainly does have a lot of trees.

Natalie Portman's directorial debut is A Tale Of Love And Darkness - an adaption of Amos Oz's memoir retelling the founding of the state of Israel through Oz's difficult family life.
