Movieby Jim Napier

The French animated film The Prodigies from director Antoine Charreyron has been added to the Cannes Film Festival lineup. The film will be one of two films played for high school students. The announcement also talked about how Cannes will have an extensive focus on filmmakers from Egypt as well as a few other updates. Be sure to watch the awesome trailer for The Prodigies, if you have not already.

Here is the synopsis for the film:

NYC, Central Park, 2010. Five young teenagers are violently assaulted. But they're not your average teenagers... they're prodigies. The trauma of the assault incites them to lash out against the world in a cold and calculating way. The five chillingly brilliant minds come together to concoct a perfect revenge. The only person aware of the pending doom is Jimbo Farrar, a sixth prodigy, who has gathered them. As long as he fights against his five counterparts with all his might, there's hope for the world. But should he turn over to their side, it's only a matter of time before a disaster of apocalyptic proportions ensues...

No author bio. End of line.
