"Return" Makes its Cannes Debut
Directors Fortnight film, "Return" debuted over the weekend in Cannes with positive-word-of-mouth and polite applause following its initial screening Saturday afternoon. The feature, directed by Liza Johnson, stars Linda Cardellini as a soldier who returns from the war to her rustbelt town. At first, she is happy to be back with her husband and two daughters and her familiar life, but slowly, everything she has known becomes unfamiliar. Following the film's debut, there was, of course, a party right on the beach in Cannes. Joining in on the fun were: Linda Cardellini, prod. Ben Howe, exec prod. Meredith Vieira (who is here this week with the Today Show), exec prod. Amy Rapp, director Liza Johnson and prod. Noah Harlan.
