Another film stimulated by Hollywood star power is Ad Astra, in which Brad Pitt is an astronaut traveling through space to find his lost father, played by Tommy Lee Jones.
The film is directed by James Gray, who has participated several times in the Palm d & # 39; Or at the Cannes film festival, including his 2013 film The Immigrant.
The laundry – directed by Steven Soderbergh and the first of the participants of Netflix in Venice – also debuts with Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas, and recalls the infamous Panama Papers scandal.
Wedding story – in which Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver play – will also compete for the Golden Lion and tells the story of the heavy separation of a couple. The film is also distributed by Netflix.
