The Guillaume Canet-directed film Blood Ties premiered at the 66th Annual Cannes film festival yesterday along with James Franco’s As I Lay Dying. Canet also wrote the screenplay for this film and adapted it from the novel by Bruno and Michel Papet. Set in the 1970s, this film follows two brothers who face off over organized crime in Brooklyn.
