I don't stay in character at home, reveals Penelope Cruz

When Laura's teenage daughter (Carla Campra) is kidnapped during a raucous reception, Laura spirals through heartbreak, suspicion, and crippling helplessness as an ex-boyfriend (Bardem) attempts to help her track down the child.

"Everybody Knows" is in the running for jury prizes, which could go to Bardem or Cruz; and Spain could submit the film for the Oscars.

"He had a Spanish teacher every day with him", she said. "There is no break for her".

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are equals in their household. Cruz said she's learned the value of setting boundaries between her on-screen and personal lives.

"Maybe I did that experiment when I was younger", Cruz said on Wednesday.

"We want to make it easier for film professionals to make deals online in a secure manner that does not rely on trust, but rather on the elegant verification process of the blockchain", said Jordan Mattos, co-founder and director of content.

"I think there's still time", he said of getting Panahi to the Saturday premiere of his film "3 Faces".

But with travel bans on two directors as well as bans hanging over some films, the festival's starry, starry line up is feeling a bit less glamorous this year.

"A few years ago there were only two [female directors in competition]", Cate added. He was living the country.

Cruz and Bardem have endured as romantic partners in a a notoriously fickle industry. They first appeared on the traditional Photocall and now were on the red carpet at the Palais des festivals and congresses, where he will take the stage during the official part of the opening ceremony. "They are there because of the quality of their work". The parity and harmony the couple exhibited even extended to their paychecks on this particular project.

Earlier in the day, at a press conference, the Oscar victor promised to confound critics with her best film choices from the competition at Cannes, joking, "If critics think differently, that's wonderful". "Not specifically. There are several women in competition but they are not there because of their gender, they are there for the quality of their work".
