Screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga, who not only wrote The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada but is a longtime collaborator of Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu (having written the screenplays for Amores perros, 21 Grams and Babel, which was just accepted as a competition entry at the Cannes Film Festival)…Guillermo is telling me to take a close look at Andrea Arnold‘s Red Road, a U.K.-Denmark production that has also just been accepted as a Cannes competition film. “She was at a Sundance workshop when I was an advisor and I can tell you that her screenplay [of Red Road] was great and that it will be a hard competitor in Cannes. She is a major talent.” Last year Arnold won the Oscar for Best Live-Action Short for Wasp, which she actually made in 2003. (Or so it says on the IMDB.)
