A comeback in style! Johnny Depp’s new film triumphs at the Cannes Film Festival and unleashes madness among the attendees.
The Cannes Film Festival has surrendered to Johnny Depp with a historic ovation. The return of the actor has taken place in Jeanne du Barry and has received a seven-minute ovation in the French city. One of the most well-known and accomplished actors of his generation, Depp’s name has recently been embroiled in controversy due to a contentious legal battle with his ex-wife, fellow actress Amber Heard. In his first on-screen role since he won the high-profile libel suit against Amber Heard, the iconic Jack Sparrow actor in the Pirates of the Caribbean saga has starred in the French-language period drama Jeanne du Barry. A film written and directed by Maïwenn.
