Cannes 2017: 'Jupiter's Moon' Review

Jupiter's Moon is the new film from director Kornél Mundruczó, who previously made White God. The follow-up is more ambitious, in ways that are both good and bad. Here's the premise: A Syrian refugee is shot dead -- except, he doesn't die, instead developing the power to levitate. Intriguing idea, right? It is. I wish Mundruczó hadn't decided to get preachy, though. My review is up at Screen International.
