We’re roughly at the midpoint of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and the dominant talking point so far seems to be Netflix, with some (including jury president Mr Pedro Almódovar) voicing their concern that two features made for the streaming service are up for the Palme d’Or. Just today, quotes have emerged of director Mr Noah Baumbach defending his Netflix funded film The Meyerowitz Stories, which stars Ms Emma Thompson, Mr Ben Stiller, and… Mr Adam Sandler. Indeed, perhaps more controversially, this neurotic comedy may well reignite the career of the Happy Gilmore actor, who has received glowing reviews for his role as the son of an aging artist, played by Mr Dustin Hoffman. But we digress.
Today, in this small corner of the internet, we are not interested in who is arguing or acting well. We do not want to concern ourselves with politics (the UK general election is quite sufficient, thank you) or careers. Here, we want to discuss the shallow business of clothes. Obviously formal attire is the go-to at Cannes, so we picked out four men who put their own slant on “smart”.
