CANNES — It was date night at the Cannes Film Festival Sunday night.

Nicole Kidman reunited with her husband Keith Urban at the world premiere of the Coen brothers film Inside Llewyn Davis.

With Urban finished with his judging duties on American Idol, he was free to jet across the Atlantic to join Kidman, who is serving as a competition judge in Cannes.

The two were clearly making up for lost time.

They never let go of each other’s hands as they walked serenely up the red carpet . At one point they embraced for photographers and whispered in each other’s ears with sly smiles on their face.

Jury president Steven Speilberg also brought his wife Kate Capshaw to the gala premiere. He took time from the top of the red carpet steps to take a picture of Capshaw with his smart phone.

The cast of Inside Llewyn Davis followed, including Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan, Oscar Isaac, Garrett Hedlund and John Goodman.

The film about the ’60s folk scene received a 10-minute standing ovation by impressed moviegoers at the premiere.
