Indiewire as well as French cine blogs have made some wishes about Skylab being selected for Cannes 2011:

”Skylab,” directed by Julie Delpy (France) “Looking for Jimmy,” “2 Days in Paris,” “The Countess,” and ow…“Skylab.” The notoriously in-control Julie Delpy is back in he director’s chair with a French comedy that uses the 1979 crashing of the fallen-out-of-orbit NASA space station Skylab to rame the story of an eccentric family. Delpy has written and stars with Noémie Lvovsky and Eric Elmosnino (“Gainsbourg,” “Father of My Children”) in what looks like a new tonal direction. Here’s hoping it’s completed and polished enough to make it onto this year’s lineup. [Bryce J. Renninger]
