Cam Archer’s black-and-white 16mm film, “Shit Year,” starring Ellen Barkin (right) as a fading actress in, “a hallucinatory confrontation with life as she relives a recent affair with a younger actor,” is atop my list of must-see films in Cannes this year. Produced by Jay van Hoy and Lars Knudsen, the indie will debut in the Director’s Fortnight section of the festival. The sidebar’s full lineup was unveiled this morning in France.
