In our latest video from the Cannes Film Festival, RogerEbert.com Publisher Chaz Ebert begins with a report on the divisive response to a film she greatly admired, Paolo Sorrentino's "Youth," starring Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Paul Dano and Rachel Weisz. Foreign correspondent Lisa Nesselson comments on the wide range of critical responses at this year's Cannes Film Festival in particular. Chaz offers her take on Justin Kurzel's unique vision of "Macbeth" and offers footage of a fascinating question she asked at the press conference of the film's star, Michael Fassbender. Footage of a panel led by Chaz Ebert on empathy at the American Pavilion is also included along with more details about The Ebert Center. Finally, she also offers her thoughts on "Chronic," starring Tim Roth, and "Valley of Love," starring Gerard Depardieu and Isabelle Huppert.
