Actually it seemed that the “lack of commitment” issue was just a rumour and that, like I said it a few weeks ago, her refusal had to do with a more concrete issue : failing of agreement between her agent and the production for the amount of $$$$ she’d get for her role. If the rest of the jury is pro-IB, I can’t imagine her opposing to it for one reason: the juries have now a press conference after the Palme d’or in which they are supposed to justify their choices. So it does make the possibility of a president choosing a prize against the rest of the jury more difficult (this “rest” having now the possibility to complain in public). This wasn’t the case before. But all of this works in case the rest of the jury were pro-IB, of which I doubt since this jury seems more interested in social and political issues.
OK I see. And youre right. They have to discuss it alot anyways. Lets hope IB is the best film of the fest. Its gotta be in the Top 2 at least!
