Tarantino, Thurman to host “Pulp Fiction” screening at Cannes

PanARMENIAN.Net - Quentin Tarantino and his Pulp Fiction leading lady, Uma Thurman, are returning to the scene of the crime, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The duo will host a special screening of the film at the Cannes Film Festival on May 23, exactly two decades after the cult classic won the festival's top prize, the Palme d'Or, in 1994, thrusting Tarantino and Thurman onto the world stage.

In 1995, Tarantino and Roger Avary won the Academy Award for best screenplay for Pulp Fiction.

While it was previously announced that Pulp Fiction would celebrate its 20th anniversary at Cannes, Tarantino's and Thurman's involvement wasn't known. Thurman is flying in for the festivities, while Tarantino was already scheduled to be at the festival for a 50th anniversary showing of Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dollars on May 24.

Thurman and Tarantino will attend a cocktail reception at the Majestic Hotel prior to the screening of Pulp Fiction, which the director will introduce.
