    Matt writes: The 72nd Cannes Film Festival came to a close last week, and publisher Chaz Ebert was there to cover the highlights in her exclusive video dispatches, along with contributors led by Barbara Scharres and Ben Kenigsberg, whose daily reviews did a marvelous job of covering the highlights. One of the most acclaimed titles this year was Ken Loach's "Sorry We Missed You," a portrait of working-class woes in Britain that caused Chaz to become emotional during the film's press conference (which is included in the dispatch embedded below).
