Cannes 2016 Preview: 5 Picks From The Palme d'Or Competition

Editor, Festivals; Los Angeles, California (@RylandAldrich)

La Croisette will soon be alive with the tuxedos of the film industry's elite and the rumpled suits of foreign sales agents vying for that big money deal. But the handshakes and copious amounts of rosé are all a sideshow compared to the excellent films on show for the festival of festivals. We've got a four-part series of previews highlighting just a few of those films that will play across the multiple sections and sidebars at this year's Cannes. The interesting-sounding films are numerous but we've limited ourselves to a mere 5 for each preview. Today we start with the big daddy Palme d'Or Competition. Enjoy this modest taste and let us know what you're looking forward to.

The Handmaiden
Director Park (as in Chan-wook) follows up Stoker with this Korean adaptation of a Fingersmith novel about an heiress who falls for a thief. Amazon is on board for US distribution.
