Video: Chaz Ebert On Cannes Selections "Louder Than Bombs," "Inside Out" and More

"You hope it's not the year," Cate Blanchett quipped during her "Carol" press conference, referring to a publication claiming 2015 would be the "year of women." Her statement is representative of the discourse at this year's Cannes Film Festival, regarding the role of women in film both in front of and behind the camera, according to RogerEbert.com publisher Chaz Ebert. In her second video report from the festival, Ebert rounds up some of the most impressive female performances at this year's festival, while offering footage of acclaimed selections such as Joachim Trier's "Louder Than Bombs" and the new Pixar release, "Inside Out," due to open in U.S. theaters on June 19th. Ebert also reminds viewers that Billy Baxter's invaluable time capsule, the 52-minute documentary, "Diary of the Cannes Film Festival," will be available to watch for free on Vimeo through Sunday, May 24th.
