As the Cannes Film Festival heads into its second half, the Hollywood veteran Clint Eastwood has unveiled what is being hailed as a front-runner for the Palme d’Or prize.
The 77-year-old’s latest work as a director, called ‘The Exchange,’ features Angelina Jolie in a gripping 1920s drama which is based on a true story. Eastwood said he saw parallels with his 1971 tough-cop role in Dirty Harry.
‘The Exchange’ centres on a woman’s search for her missing son. The Los Angeles police, in desperate need of good publicity, say they have found him. And there, the intrigue begins.
