Cannes 2015 Diary #4: The End

Cannes isn’t all class, you know: karaoke is a popular pursuit on the sidelines and a nice chance for networkers to let their hair down and belt out a cheesy number or two, safe in the knowledge that everyone else is making an equal idiot of themselves.

There’s polite applause from the friendly crowd and the odd hi-five, but I’ve made a mental note for next year: choose songs recorded in the last five years, preferably with innuendo. Think Miley Cyrus. It’s a fun evening that ends with everyone piling onto the makeshift dance floor and shouting over whatever person is vainly trying to sing at that point.

Put simply: the earth will not move for you.

From feasting on The Lobster and the new Amy Winehouse documentary, to partying with Mos Def and ending up in a curry house. Our reporter, Anna Smith, keeps it classy at Cannes. Here's day two of her blog, exclusively for Virgin Movies!  

Are you simply sick of superheroes saving the day yet again?  Tired of found footage horror flicks?  Bored by the latest best-selling book adaptations?  Are you longing for something, well, a bit more original? A black and white Iranian film might not be the first thing that tempts you for a night out at the cinema, but think again, because A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is likely to be one of the coolest films you’ll see this year.  Here are nine reasons why:
