“Midnight in Paris” by Woody Allen opens Cannes Film Festival

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: WoodyAllen’s “Midnight in Paris” will open the Cannes Film Festival on May 11th.

But of course! The French love Woody, and Woody has reciprocated with a movie about the City of Lights. France’s First Lady, Carla Bruni Sarkozy, has a cameo.

Can you imagine what the red carpet will be like? Sacre bleu! Marion Cotillard, the most famous French actress of this generation, is the star, along with Michael Sheen and Rachel McAdams. Owen Wilson is in it. Mon dieu! At the same time this morning, Rupert Murdoch debuted his new IPAd newspaper, The Daily.

The slick live video presentation, if you watched it on a laptop PC, required Adobe Flash plug in. Apple, which makes the IPad, doesn’t support Flash. Steve Jobs hates Adobe. So. wtf, as they say? Initial impression: The Daily’s front page reminded me of US News and World Report.
