Cannes: 5 Major Scandals Through The Years

Justine Ashley Costanza, writing for The International Business Times.

The Cannes Film Festival -- indisputably one of the most anticipated film events of the year -- is associated with glamour, prestige, and artistic brilliance. The seaside festival is also famous for serving up numerous scandals and controversies.

Calling these "major scandals" is a bit much, but it's a nice reminder of the festival's occasional rocky times and entertaining kerfluffles. I love the characterization of the Cannes audience as "artsy progressives." Not that I think the description is wrong, necessarily, but it's questionable journalism.
