Highlights from the Cannes Film Festival
Listen to/Watch entire show:
As the Cannes Film Festival reaches its final days the big awards winners aren't yet known but some films have proven to be audience favorites. The Coen Brothers' new film, Inside Llewyn Davis, and the Alexander Payne film, Nebraska, were both well received. And the new movie from A Separation director Asghar Farhadi, The Past, looks like an eventual Oscar contender for the Best Foreign Language Film. But the new Ryan Gosling-Nicolas Winding Refn film, Only God Forgives, was roundly booed. This comes after the two had the Cannes hit, Drive, a couple years ago. Meanwhile, during the festival there've been a rash of thefts and burglaries giving some drama off-screen.
