Cannes 2016: 'Hands of Stone' Review

The signs were not encouraging for Hands of Stone. This biopic about Roberto Duran had seen its press screenings canceled here at Cannes, leaving only one late-night premiere available to critics. Usually, that's an indication that you're about to see a stinker. Well, the movie may not be great, but it's good enough, thanks especially to Edgar Ramirez and (wonder of wonders) Robert De Niro. My review is up at Screen International.
