If Paolo Sorrentino's Youth is not in Cannes this year, then it might as well be nowhere. Though maybe, with Sorrentino's status as a recent Oscar winner and a high profile English-language cast, there's a slight chance that Cannes rejects the film, making way for a more awards season friendly berth perhaps at Venice. And that's a definite possibility, what with the fact that so many other Cannes regulars will have English-language features in the marketplace this year. But Italian distributors Medusa Distribuzione seem confident, and have a 21st of May release date set, so Cannes looks to be the logical choice yet again for Sorrentino.
