Cannes 2017: 'The Summit' Review

The Summit ought to be a lot of fun, telling the story of how the new president of Argentina (Ricardo Darín) tackles political and personal crises simultaneously while in the midst of a high-stakes summit with other Latin American leaders. There's potential for a pulpy airport-novel thriller, but the movie gets away from filmmaker Santiago Mitre. I reviewed The Summit for Screen International.
