However, the 33-year-old British rocker's performance was panned at the ongoing 65th Canne International Film Festival earlier this week. The trailer has Doherty mix up several sex scenes in the role of a libertine, who falls into depression after his mistress (Lily Cole) betrays him.
Critics have called his appearance a "calamitous miscasting" mixed with "mumbled lines" and a "permanently bored expression". The Britain release date of the film is yet to be decided.
