Our coverage of the Cannes Film Festival kicks off on the French Riviera with France 24's Catherine Nicholson and cinema critic Iris Brey. There's already controversy with the opening film "Grace of Monaco", a biopic of screen icon Grace Kelly, who is played by Australian actress Nicole Kidman. Monaco's royal family is boycotting Cannes over the film.
Also on today's show: Iris Brey tells us what she is looking forward to seeing at Cannes this year. Films by Vincent Bonnello and Xavier Dolan are just some of the hotly anticipated movies in competition.
