A local artist is thrilled her paintings are being showcased in the Atom Egoyan movie “The Captive,” which has been selected as one of 18 movies competing for the Palme d'Or at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival next month.

The film, starring Ryan Reynolds, among other well-known actors, was shot in Sudbury in February 2013. Christy Smith said the production team used 11 of her paintings for the sets.

“In the one-minute trailer, about 53 seconds in, Ryan Reynolds in standing in a house with a hallway behind him...one of my paintings is on that wall,” Smith said, in an email.

She said the paintings used for the movie will be on display at her upcoming art exhibition and sale, which takes place from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. May 10-11 at Fielding Memorial Park in Lively.
