However, the news isn’t all bad for Stewart. The noir offering, which reunited her with The Clouds of Sils Maria director Oliver Assayas, has also notched up some pretty glowing reviews from critics.
Stewart maintained a light-hearted response. “Hey, everyone did not boo,” she said with a laugh when asked about the crowd’s reaction.
She and Assayas also have history on their side. Audiences at Cannes have a long history of booing movies that go onto to be successful such as Taxi Driver, Marie Antoinette, Inglorious Bastards, and Pulp Fiction.
