Harvey Weinstein used the occasion of what has become his annual Cannes showreel presentation to remind attendees that a pre-arranged trip to Jordan was the reason for his absence from Wednesday’s world premiere of the embattled Grace Of Monaco.

After this sombre introduction, Weinstein presented footage from a varied slate that included St Vincent, Big Eyes, Macbeth and The Imitation Game
