Cannes opens with DiCaprio, Spielberg
CANNES, France (AP) — The Cannes Film Festival is getting under way with a blockbuster day of Steven Spielberg and Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby."
The French Riviera extravaganza began on a rainy Wednesday, where the prestigious festival was to open with the 3-D adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel. Spielberg is serving as jury president of this year's Cannes, presiding over a particularly starry group including Nicole Kidman, Ang Lee and Christoph Waltz.
"Gatsby" is making its European premiere Wednesday night, nearly a week after opening in North America. Such timing is atypical for Cannes, but the glamorous, flashy film is otherwise perfectly in line with the glitzy festival. It also returns Leonardo DiCaprio to Cannes' famous red carpet.
