RILEY KEOUGH: 2 REASONS TO BE AT CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

Who would have guessed that Elvis’s pretty granddaughter Riley Keough would become a film director? Granted, she’s an established actress, but we didn’t realize that Elvis’s offspring would turn out to be so ambitious. Actually, Riley co-directed her first film War Pony with partner Gina Gammell -and their first try got them to the Cannes Film Festival! The young directors were floored when they got a huge ovation from their audience. The film is a glimpse into the life of a young 23 year old Native American growing up on a reservation. Coincidentally, Baz Luhrmann’s film Elvis, about Riley’s grandfather, is premiering at Cannes in a few days – fortunately Riley already saw it and loves it, so she will probably stick around for that…

  1. Girl is a director ? Wow Elvis would be so proud between sandwiches .

  2. Not sure how this will go over in the native community. They have been trying for years to get their stories out there and now to have a nonnative get all this attention? Does not seem right.

  3. Good reviews. Amazon Primew is slated to pick it up, and that’s when we’ll be seeing it. 🙂
