Until the 65th Cannes Film Fest opens...
Let's start with a couple of large overviews of what's coming from France next week. The first from The Playlist:
Also from Roger Ebert's Chicago Sun Times colleague Barbara Schaares:
Jake Howell at Movie City News takes a fairly in depth look at two Cannes competition contenders. Walter Salles "On the Road" (TFF #39 chances 50%) and Ken Loach's "The Angel's Share" (TFF #39 chances 30%).
