Frank Francesco Quinn

In a now classic spoof of the Hollywood star making machine, film producer Sy Lerner (Seymour Cassel) makes a bet with a fellow film executive that he can turn any nobody into a star at the Cannes Film Festival. A New York cab driver who is visiting the festival is chosen as the test subject to settle the bet and Sy uses his skills of hype and manipulation to turn the cab driver, Frank (Francesco Quinn), into the talk of the town. Set against the lush backdrop of the Mediterranean during the world’s most celebrated film festival, industry professionals mix with starlets, wannabes and paparazzi followed by the back room dynamics of hype, deal-making and manipulation. Director Richard Martini’s film is as relevant today as when it was first released and features laugh-out-loud appearances by Johnny Depp and Rebecca Broussard with cameos by John Malkovich, Benicio Del Toro, James Brolin, Harvey Weinstein, Jim Jarmusch and more.

Delisha

Hollywood New Times film critic Ryan Hackbart is whisked down the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, dragged in by the French National Police as a suspect in the murder of the lead actress of the festival’s opening-night film. Interrogated but released, Ryan is still considered a prime suspect. His passport confiscated, and now hounded by the world media, Ryan’s movie-mind clues him that he is the fall guy in a Hitchcock-like thriller – he must solve the murder before the culprit kills him or the police arrest him. Aided by an indomitable female companion, Delisha, Ryan’s investigation thrusts him inside the most glamorous film festival in the world and opens his eyes to what is underneath Cannes’ red carpet. He’s engulfed into a dangerous maelstrom of celebrity, high-fashion, egos, fake news, Russian billionaires and ruthless wannabees. A murder mystery/romance, The Red Carpet at Cannes is a captivating, behind-the-scenes look at the glitz, intrigue, and romance of the world’s most celebrated film festival. It’s a five-star travelogue straight into a celebrity universe: dazzling parties, scrumptious cuisine, superstar celebrities, high fashion, and movie-world politics.
