Cannes: The 10 hottest movies

  A chilly downpour greeted arrivals on the Côte d’Azur this week, with the promise of more un-beach-friendly weather to follow. Parties, interview sessions and other manufactured events were feverishly rescheduled to more sheltered locations. But while the sunny weather and picture-postcard scenery of the Riviera are usually a lot more pleasant this time of year, they aren’t the real reason why the entire film industry descends on this overgrown resort town for 10 days every spring. Now we all have an excuse to head indoors and watch movies.

I’ve already read other critics proclaiming in advance that this 66th Festival de Cannes — which got underway on Wednesday night with the star-studded but rain-soaked European premiere of “The Great Gatsby,” followed by murky midnight fireworks — will be a memorably great one, with one of the strongest lineups in years.
