For day 2 at Cannes, Film Comment Editor-in-Chief Nicolas Rapold sits down with Eugene Hernandez, Deputy Director of Film at Lincoln Center, to chat about a handful of the most impactful films they've seen so far. The two take a look at the breakout immigration drama Les Misérables, from Cannes rookie Ladj Ly. The film, set in a rough Parisian banlieue, builds to an explosive confrontation between authorities, community leaders, and a group of intrepid, angry teens. They also discuss Bull—the first feature from director Annie Silverstein—a coming-of-age story set in rural Texas, and the line-up of movies by young filmmakers at the festival.
