In even the most out-there parts of “Annette,” Driver is ferociously dedicated and intensely physical.wftv.com
Spike Lee, 'Annette' kick off 74th Cannes Film Festival
The Cannes Film Festival rolled out the red carpet for the first time in more than two years on Tuesday, launching the French Riviera spectacular with the premiere of Leos Carax’s “Annette,” the introduction of Spike Lee’s jury, and with high hopes for shrugging off a punishing pandemic year for cinema.
A Cannes (sans kisses) to reawaken our romance with movies
Cannes Preview FILE - This May 7, 2018 file photo shows a view of the Palais des Festivals at the 71st international film festival, Cannes, southern France. This year's Cannes Film Festival will be held July 6-17 — two months later than its usual May perch. But in the past 16 months, Cannes’ Palais hasn’t been home to the movie frenzy it hosts annually. Earlier this year, it was turned into a mass-vaccination “Vaccinodrome.”On Tuesday, the Cannes Film Festival, delayed from May to July, will finally open its doors for its 74th and maybe most critical edition. (To mitigate crowds, the Cannes movie market was instead held in June.)wftv.com
