“The Sea of Trees” was reportedly “booed” at Cannes today after its conclusion. An act that is highly disrespectful and isn’t at all what true film criticism is about.
There’s a lot to rant about there, but the bottom-line is that this film had a great amount of potential with Gus Van Sant directing, and a star-filled cast consisting of Matthew McConaughey, Ken Watanabe, and Naomi Watts.
Roadside Attractions bought the rights to distribution earlier this week. So we’ll get to see the film for ourselves soon, but for now please disregard the films placement in any of our Oscar or Golden Globe Predictions. We will fully update our predictions once Cannes concludes.
