PARIS — Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris," which features France's first lady in a minor role, will be the opening night movie at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

"Midnight in Paris" marks the acting debut of former supermodel-turned-singer Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.

The romantic comedy stars Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, Kathy Bates and Adrien Brody.

Allen's film will screen at Cannes and throughout France on May 11.

The 75-year-old New Yorker is a regular at Cannes, and in 2002 the festival gave him a special achievement award.
