Top 5 Films To Watch At Cannes Film Festival 2011

Right now all eyes are on the French Riviera. The 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival rolled out its red carpet and opened on May 11th with Woody Allen's film "Midnight in Paris." This year's 11-day long festival is being hosted by Mélanie Laurent, known for her role in Tarantino's "Inglorious Basterds." Serving as president of the jury for the main competition is Robert De Niro, who has already compared Cannes jury duty to being on vacation. Even though not all of the films mentioned here are up for the Palme d'Or, we think these are the five films worth watching.
