The first time Jodie Foster came to the Cannes Film Festival, she did so as a co-star in Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver," and as a wide-eyed 13-year-old, soaking in the spectacle.Though this year's program is, as always, full of socially minded films, it opens on a light note with Woody Allen's "Cafe Society," a comedy about '30s Hollywood.Cannes' main slate of "in competition" films vying for the Palme includes Asghar Farhadi ("The Salesman"), Ken Loach ("I, Daniel Blake"), Olivier Assayas ("Personal Shopper"), Pedro Almodovar ("Julieta"), Park Chan-Wook ("The Handmaiden") and Jim Jarmusch ("Patterson"), who'll also debut his documentary on Iggy Pop and the Stooges, "Gimme Danger".The 37-year-old Nichols says his film is his most mature yet.This year, the 21 films in competition include three directed by women – including "Citizenfour" director Laura Poitras' Julian Assange documentary "Risk".Amazon Studios, in just its second year of original movie releases, has five films at the festival, including those by Allen, Jarmusch and Nicholas Winding Refn.
