While you were outside grilling, probably see "Fast and Furious 6", and celebrating a fun-filled Memorial Day weekend in general, an ocean away, the Cannes Film Festival wrapped up and handed out of some awards. The big winner, a three-hour drama about a relationship between two young women called "Blue Is the Warmest Color," blew audiences away and claimed the Palme d'Or from the jury led by Steven Spielberg.
The latest effort from the Brothers Coen, "Inside Llewyn Davis," didn't do so bad for itself either. The jury named the story of the 1960s folk singer as the runner up to "Blue."
Film.com sent critic Jordan Hoffman to France to cover all of the festivities. We've done a quick roundup of some of the higher profile premieres.
