My trip to Cannes has not yet happened as I’m stuck in an airport in Zurich waiting to fly to Nice. I will arrive there in the early evening. In the meantime, I thought you’d appreciate this tweet from @russellcrowe, who has just arrived in Cannes:
so far, Cannes as glamorous as a sausage sandwich. hotel took suits couple hours ago to steam, haven’t returned. Shorts n’ hood 4 press.
Of the disappointing things to happen so far, not counting the volcano and my own flight snafu (scheduling the wrong date and then having to change it), is that Robin Hood has ALREADY been met with tepid reviews so far before it even has a chance to take Cannes by storm. If people go see it with lowered expectations perhaps it will be a better sit. As for me, I’m off.
