Cannes: 6 Things to know about Ryan Gosling's 'Only God Forgives'
CANNES -- The Ryan Gosling-Nicolas Refn collaboration “Only God Forgives” premieres to the media at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday morning before playing in a public gala Wednesday night. The movie, which reunites the star and director of the 2011 hit “Drive,” examines Julian (Gosling), an American boxing-gym operator and mid-level drug dealer in Bangkok who is thrust into a difficult spot when a brutal crime boss and dark angel of sorts (Vithaya Pansringarm) kills his brother. Should Julian seek justice or stay silent in the name of self-preservation?
