Cannes festival 2024

This year’s lineup goes heavy on all-star auteurs, with new films from Yorgos Lanthimos (“Kinds of Kindness”), Andrea Arnold (“Bird”), Sean Baker (“Anora”) and Paul Schrader (“Oh, Canada”). But Cannes is even more fun when an unexpected movie pops, as “Anatomy of a Fall” did last year when it earned rave reviews and the Palme d’Or, setting up a path that would eventually lead to Oscar glory. What will be the movie that no one is anticipating before the festival but everyone will be talking about afterward? I’ll be on the ground trying to sniff it out.
