SPOTLIGHT ON CANNES 2021: IN COMPETITION — RED ROCKET —Sean Baker
"Mikey Saber is a 39-year-old washed-up porn star who returns to his small Texas hometown, not that anyone really wants him back." Simon Rex, Bree Elrod, and Suzanna Son star in this American drama.
"American auteur Sean Baker ("Tangerine," "The Florida Project") brings a dramedy about a washed up "suitcase pimp" who can't escape his awful way of being."
Social satire comes with the territory. A kick-ass American filmmaker such as Sean Baker could just win the 2021 Palme d'Or, just don't say I told you so if it happens.
