‘All Eyez on Me’ Review: Tupac Shakur’s Complicated Life Deserves More Than This Sprawling Biopic

With the restoration premiering as part of the Cannes Classics line-up, it’ll fittingly come to France first. The new restoration of The Graduate hits U.K. theaters starting June 23 while Unforgiven returns to theaters in France two days prior.
