Whichever film wins the Palme d'Or at Cannes Sunday night, there is no mistaking the biggest mainstream hit of the festival.Chris Pine and Ben Foster -- who play the brothers -- swagger across the screen like "Wayne's punk grandsons", Variety declared, saying the film was Pine's "undoubted breakthrough" after years of being typecast as Captain Kirk in "Star Trek".Director Mackenzie -- who lives thousands of miles from West Texas in Glasgow -- has also won praise for this "authentic slice of Americana" which catches the zeitgeist of increasing distrust of banks and other financial institutions.For all the praise of the film's authenticity in depicting dying small towns, Mackenzie admitted it does get one vital thing wrong.
