A controversial Cannes Cannes

Meryl Streep

Europe’s most glamorous film festival in Cannes, France, has kicked off – but what was supposed to be a year celebrating women, including Meryl Streep, could be the opposite with reports that a secret list of 10 abusive men in the film biz will be revealed. Reports say the “explosive” list includes top actors and directors, prompting festival organisers to have a crisis management team at the ready. So far the list hasn’t been made public, and the 77th year has continued with its usual glamour… That includes the red carpet – we’re big fans of Jane Fonda’s jumpsuit-trenchcoat combo, but can’t get past Greta Gerwig’s ‘hoof’ shoes… The most anticipated film is Francis Ford Coppola’s Megalopolis, but if sci-fi’s not your thing, there are several movies featuring dogs as filmmakers have gone canine crazy… The festival runs until 25 May.
