Cannes Day 6: More rain and “Like Father, Like Son”
May 18, 2013
Well the lights go low on the avenue…Cannes Palais de Festival Avenue that is.
Chilling with George who cooked us up nice pizza. Between pizza and sandwiches, I’m surprised how thin all French people are. All they eat is bread, cheese, and wine. Not even joking.
Today was a lazy day. The rain continued, making it the third straight day with full downpour. Made me not want to leave my room, let alone wear a tux.
This time, they didn’t let us walk the main red carpet for the premiere of “Like Father, Like Son,” a Japanese film about a father that learns his son was actually switched at birth. It was a truly heartwarming story about what makes a house into a home, and asks the question whether it is more important to be related to your child or to have been the one who loved him and raised him for 6 years.
Steve and I just inside the Grand Lumiere Theater. Stopped for a photo op to send back home to Rutgers
The Grand Lumiere Theater at the Palais is the most impressive theater I have ever been in. Seats 2300 people. You can only see the upper balcony here, there is an entire floor Orchestra level as well.
We took a nice walk in the rain looking for food after “Like Father, Like Son.” The city is so beautiful at night.
They do pizza so differently here. It’s kinda soupy, but all the ingredients are super fresh! Plus the wine is fantastic.
Lol had to make a shoutout to all the Cap and Skull members who have been so supportive of my trip thus far. Thanks guys for everything, and congrats to the graduating class of 2013! SA
