According to THR:
Three other conspicuous absentees from the lineup have extenuating circumstances: Claire Denis’ English-language High Life, starring Robert Pattinson and Binoche, is being screened for the committee today.
According to Indiewire:
“High Life” is nowhere to be seen on the festival’s current slate is a major surprise, though it’s possible it could land a spot in Directors’ Fortnight, which played home to her “Let the Sunshine In” just last year. It’s also possible that the film, reportedly VFX-heavy, isn’t ready for a May premiere.
We know for sure that the film will not be in competition, however,
there may be other opportunities to work the film into the festival!
We will keep you posted!
