The Cannes Film Festival kicked off last Wednesday with the opening night premiere of Wes Anderson's new film, "Moonrise Kingdom." But there are still plenty of highlights yet to come, including a new film from "Precious" director Lee Daniels, the new Brad Pitt vehicle, "Killing Them Softly," and the highly-anticipated screen adaptation of Kerouac's beat classic, "On the Road."

Madeleine speaks with Karina Longworth, who's been covering the festival for L.A. Weekly.
