Ralph Fiennes’ eagerly awaited directorial debut, Coriolanus is apparently screening during the Cannes Film Festival!
When the initial announcements for the festival lineup were made, there was no mention of Coriolanus and I, for one, was extremely disappointed. There had been rumors of Fiennes taking his film to France almost since it was completed. JMHO, but the cachet that comes with having your film shown at Cannes cannot be underestimated.

(Thank you to the Weinsteins, whose name and influence, I have no doubt, were instrumental in bringing this about.)
