Cannes Film Festival Line-Up Revealed


For the most part, the majority of the films Variety speculated would be included at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival made the final list. The only ones that didn’t were Werner Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant and Francis Ford Coppola’s Tetro out of the group I listed from their early report. However, to make up for it they have added Alejandro Amenabar’s Agora starring Rachel Weisz, which is big news if you ask me.
