Granted, "Blood Ties" is a bit of mess (and you can read why in our review from Cannes), but there is much to like about it too. Particularly the performances, with Clive Owen giving the best turn he's delivered in a quite a while, matched by Billy Crudup as his emotionally wounded brother and James Caan as their father who comes between the pair, eager to keep the family together. A sprawling two-and-a-half-hour saga set in the mid-1970s, the story chronicles ex-con Chris, recently out of another stint in the joint, who spirals back into a life of crime, while is brother Frank is torn between the affection he has for his brother and his duty to bring him to justice. It's a lot to tackle -- with an extended cast that features Mila Kunis, Matthias Schoenaerts, Zoe Saldana, Marion Cotillard, Noah Emmerich and Lili Taylor too -- and while it doesn't quite come together, the talent is still intriguing. With the premiere now behind it, a few more details...
Guillaume Canet’s English-language directorial debut Blood Ties is here in official selection, out of competition. Lionsgate has taken U.S. distribution rights to the movie which will go out via its sister company Roadside Attractions. Canet and James Gray wrote the script about two brothers, one a cop and one an ex-con. It’s based on the French film Les Liens Du Sang which starred Canet. He stayed behind the camera for this one with Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Maroin Cotillard, Domenick Lombardozzi, Mila Kunis, Matthias Schoenaerts, Zoť Saldana and James Caan starring. Lionsgate UK took rights for that territory last year. Alain Attal and Hugo Selignac of Les Productions du Tresor, Canet, Worldview Entertainment CEO Christopher Woodrow and John Lesher of Le Grisbi Productions are producers. Executive producers are Xavier Amblar, Christopher Goode, Kerry Orent, Molly Conners, Sarah Johnson Redlich, Maria Cestone and Hoyt David Morgan. The deal was negotiated on behalf of Lionsgate by Jason Constantine, president of acquisitions and co-productions, with Eda Kowan, SVP of acquisitions and Wendy Jaffe, EVP of business and legal affairs. CAA, which packaged and arranged financing, brokered the deal on behalf of Worldview. Wild Bunch has international sales

When Style Pop, a new live, half hour show, premieres on Style Network this summer, chances are you're going to majorly girl crush on hosts Jeannie Mai and Louise Roe, who know the fashion and beauty worlds inside and out. Sitting down with them at NBC Universal's Summer Press Day was like chatting with your most fun girlfriends and I walked away with some fabulous style advice. See for yourself... OK! News: Get Zoe Saldana's 'Star Trek' Premiere Look OK!: Tell me about Style Pop. Louise Roe: Style Pop is the first live show on Style Network, which is very exciting because it gives our 30 minute show an immediacy and a lot of interaction with the fans. We have a giggle. Jeannie and I have known each other for a while and we’ll always gossip and throw around opinions and ideas and now we get to do that on live TV which might be the biggest mistake they’ve ever made by letting us loose. We will be a bit naughty and a bit fun. OK! News: Love Carey Mulligan's Cannes Makeup Style? Copy It! OK!: Are there any personal friends you’d love to bring on as guests? LR: Absolutely, I just bumped into Joey Maalouf, Rachel Zoe’s best mate, and he’s hilarious. I’ve known him for a little while. He’s a makeup artist. He’s the funniest dude of all time. People like that who have a very strong opinion but who are going to make us laugh. Jeannie Mai: I’m really excited to have what I call cewebrities, big stars on the web. People who are everyday human beings but turn their talent into crafts we watch on YouTube. I’d love to have Michelle Phan, she has half a billion views on YouTube. I’d love to have her on to show us how to wing tip a liner, I think I’d like to learn from that. I’d love having Aimee Song, one of my favorite bloggers on Instagram. Time after time every one of her pictures…she’s fantastic. What I like about that is I naturally am intrigued by celebrities but I don’t follow them. Who I follow are real people who are living real day living and real day budgets and clothes, and I want to relate with more everyday people. LR: We will make an exception for Ryan Gosling. He’s not a cewebrity. JM: He’s not even human. Ryan Gosling is our unicorn. What if our show’s mascot was Ryan Gosling? We need to talk about that. OK! News: What's In Your Beauty Bag, Francia Raisa? OK!: What are you both coveting right now? JM: Louise is rocking one of the things I really love—a midi ring. Midi rings are really fun to have, halfway down (the finger). That and the undone hair for me. I’m not a big polished hair person so I like a little Fraggle Rock look sometimes. What about you? LR: The head to toe print in any kind of sixties mod or a seventies paisley and florals are beautiful. And I love the sorbet colors so like the pistachio green and lemon yellow and peach and coral. Those are my favorites for spring. JM: I die over rose gold. I think I might get my wedding ring dipped in rose gold. It’s just so beautiful. Photos: Fashion Lessons Learned From Kate Middleton's Maternity Style OK!: What are your tips for trying out a daring makeup look? LR: My biggest tip isn’t specific to a color, it’s try out a new beauty idea on a day off, on the Sunday afternoon when you’re not going out. It’s such a common mistake, I remember the first time I learned how to glue on lashes and I was going out and of course I screwed up. I had glue all up my eyebrow and it was a total nightmare. Just give yourself that play afternoon. JM: If you’re going to try out a new trend which, by the way, hurrah! Go try those bold new steps. Use it as a centerpiece for the rest of your outfit. If an orange lip is your centerpiece, just like a dinner table, let that be the focal point and dress the rest of the outfit around it so you kind of start there and let everything else flow around it. I will do that. A lot of women do top, bottom, shoes and then makeup. Why not do makeup first? What's your favorite fashion tip? Share it in the comments below or tweet @OKMagazine.
