The shadow of disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein is looming over this year's Cannes. While #MeToo remains a dominant issue, there are more women on the jury than in the competition.

The MeToo campaign for sexual equality will have "no direct impact" on who wins at the Cannes Film Festival, Cate Blanchett, the head of this year's majority-female jury, said on Tuesday. However, that isn't the case with popular Hollywood couple Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem as the actress has revealed that the duo received equal paychecks for their new movie 'Everybody Knows'.

"Everybody Knows" (Todos Los Saben) is produced by Alexandre Mallet-Guy of Memento Films and Álvaro Longoria of Morena Films.

"You don't come to Cannes to see yourself".

Focus Features has acquired "Everybody Knows", beating out Netflix for rights to the opening night film of this year's Cannes. With the modernisation and the way the world has changed...the difference between men and women has changed. The award-winning actress also premiered her first short film as a director, "Come Swim", at the festival previous year. In the film, Laura (Cruz) and her two children travel from Argentina to her home village in Spain for her sister's wedding.

Also on the jury are Burundian songwriter Khadja Nin, Russian filmmaker Andrey Zvyagintsev, Canadian director Denis Villeneuve, French director Robert Guediguian and Chinese actor Chang Chen.

Nouvelle Vague provocateur Jean-Luc Godard is premiering latest work in the competition, "Le livre d'image". She indeed made a startling start and with that we now all the more expect the "Queen" actress to sweep us off our feet by donning attractive outfits at the Red Carpet.

Deepika has been a fixture at the prestigious film festival, where she is invited as a guest of the cosmetics brand, L'Oreal. "He was punished, and (festival president) Pierre Lescure along with the board decided that the punishment had lasted long enough", Fremaux said.

At least two women have alleged the disgraced movie mogul raped or sexually harassed them at Cannes. Most anticipated at the festival is considered to be perhaps not even the screening of films and display of dresses. The director denied the allegations, and the film festival invited him. Only one female filmmaker, Jane Campion, has ever won the Palme.
