Being married to Charlotte Gainsbourg must be tough. The daughter of one of France's most cherished and provocative artistic figures, Serge Gainsbourg, and his wife and muse, actress and fashion icon Jane Birkin, Charlotte is famous in her own right as an actress and musician and is much-loved in France. Meanwhile, her poor schmuck of a husband is a nobody who mopes around being jealous of her famous, handsome co-stars while she's off filming movies in glamorous locations in languages he cannot understand.
At least, that's the impression we get in the semi-autobiographical movie My Wife is an Actress, in which Charlotte stars with her real-life husband Yvan Attal, who also wrote and directed the romantic comedy about a 'normal' guy married to a famous actress and the problems they encounter.

After receiving a standing ovation on closing night at the Cannes Film Festival in May, and featuring at both the Sydney and Melbourne International Film Festivals, The Tree will be released in Australia September 30. The moving story of an eight-year old girl who’s convinced her dead father has come back to protect her family and speaks to her through the leaves of her favourite tree, it’s an absorbing and touching film. Set and filmed entirely in Queeensland but with a French director, Julie Bertuccelli, and actor, Charlotte Gainsbourg, this is an Australian story with a difference.
To celebrate the release we have an in-season double pass to give away to five lucky new Kluster subscribers, so get subscribing.

What do Hot Chip, Florence and the Machine, Dizzee Rascal, The XX, Marina and the Diamonds and Charlotte Gainsbourg have in common?
Well, aside from being international music superstars (and in the case of Gainsbourg, music and film), they are all a part of Selfridges new set of window displays, titled 'Sounds of Mind'.
Andrew snapped this shot of Hot Chip's 'I Feel Better' window display at Selfridges on Oxford Street, London. The display was designed by the band and Pete Fowler. It will feature for the next 6 weeks.
