Video: Cannes Premieres of "Life Itself," "Foxcatcher," and "The Homesman"

In our second video report from the Cannes Film Festival, Chaz Ebert reports on the festival premieres of Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" (starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo) and Tommy Lee Jones "The Homesman" (with Hilary Swank). Far-Flung Correspondent Michal Olesczyk offers his take on the Jones film and raves about Mike Leigh's "Mr. Turner" and Alice Rohrwacher's "The Wonders."

Chaz returns in the video to offer her very personal recap of the Cannes premiere of Steve James' "Life Itself," the documentary about Roger Ebert, which will be released in theaters and On Demand on July 4, 2014. She offers a note that she wrote to Roger about the event and tells of a very rare event: a mid-film Q&A. Don't miss it.
