The Cannes Film Festival, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, has historically been about cool to change.Opening Wednesday with French director Arnaud Desplechin's "Ismael's Ghosts," this year's festival includes films from Netflix, movies from Amazon (including Todd Haynes' "Wonderstruck"), two high-profile television series (David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" revival and Jane Champion's "Top of the Lake"), and virtual-reality exhibits, including a multimedia installation by Alejandro Inarritu.After an outcry from French theater organizers announced last week that, beginning next year, films without intentions of French theatrical release will be ineligible for Cannes' Palme d'Or competition.Sofia Coppola accompanied her father when he debuted "Apocalypse Now" at Cannes.This year, she will premiere "The Beguiled," her fourth at Cannes and second in competition.There are 12 female-directed films in this year's 54-strong official selection, including three in competition.Like many other filmmakers, Coppola was racing last week to put the final touches on her film before the festival.
