    For this last show before the Cannes Film Festival begins, we profile jury president George Miller. He’ll have the difficult task of deciding which film wins the prestigious Golden Palm. The Australian director is the father of the Mad Max franchise and “Mad Max Fury Road” screened in Cannes last year before going on to win six Oscars.
    Also, we talk to French actor Laurent Lafitte. He’s both hosting the opening and closing ceremonies and starring in Paul Verhoeven’s first feature in a decade.
