The Cannes Film Festival eschewed its usual blockbuster opening Wednesday to give its coveted first slot to a film by a woman director for only the second time.The Oscar-winning actress appears alongside Rooney Mara in "Carol," a Todd Haynes film in the running for the top Palme d'Or prize, which tells the story of a love affair between two women in New York in the 1950s.France is particularly well represented in this year's race for the top prize, making up five of the 19 Palme d'Or entries.Among the highlights appearing outside the competition are Woody Allen's latest, "Irrational Man," and a new Pixar animation called "Inside Out".The festival is also the biggest film industry get-together of the year, with about 12,000 delegates from 116 countries expected to attend, hawking their movies and closing deals.
