Selena Gomez and Zoe Saldana Shine at 'Emilia Perez' Cannes Debut

The Cannes Film Festival, a prestigious event that draws A-listers and film enthusiasts from around the world, was the backdrop for various social and professional gatherings. At the Nespresso beach club, Emmy and Isabelle from HELLO!'s daily diary mingled with celebrities such as Lily Van Der Woodsen, portrayed by Kelly Rutherford, and Victoria Justice during an Instagram X Vanity Fair soiree. The duo experienced the glamour of the festival, partaking in lavish parties and lunches at exclusive locations like the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, known for hosting stars like Kevin Costner. Despite a late-night encounter with closed bar doors at the Carlton, rumored to be Demi Moore's accommodation, they were also spotted at the Amfar party, noted for its subdued ambiance.

Meanwhile, Jacques Audiard's Spanish-language musical "Emilia Perez" garnered significant attention as a Cannes Competition entry. The film tells the tale of a Mexican cartel kingpin who undergoes gender reassignment to live as a woman. Starring Zoe Saldana and Selena Gomez, the narrative probes the complexities of identity and violence, complemented by a musical score by Camille and Clement Ducol. Although the movie's ending received some critique, it remains a strong contender in the festival, following Audiard's previous Palme d'Or win for "Dheepan."

In local news, Cindi Hajicek has requested a recount for the May 7 primary election, where she vied for the Republican nomination for state representative in District 49 against Joanna King. The initial results showed King leading with 65% of the votes to Hajicek's 35%, with official certification of the numbers still pending.

Lastly, The Pulse Poll has launched an online survey inviting local businesses to share their insights to better navigate economic challenges. Participants will not only contribute valuable information for community service improvement but also have the opportunity to win $1,000 as a token of appreciation for their participation.
