Cannes 2017 Festival Winners

The 70th annual Cannes Film Festival took place over Memorial Day weekend in France, and while we may pick and choose the artsy films we discuss here at the epic review this year’s results and timing made this year especially noteworthy.  It was a big year at Cannes in 2017 for female empowerment with Sofia Coppola taking home the award for best director for her Civil War film: The Beguiled, as well as the legendary Nicole Kidman taking home the 70th-anniversary award for her prestigious filmography.
