Coppola Film Jeered at Cannes

Sofia Coppola has defended her new period drama Marie-Antoinette after it was booed during a press screening at the Cannes Film Festival Tuesday night. Despite admitting the response was "disappointing," Coppola insisted the Kirsten Dunst-starring movie was always going to provoke heated debate. She said, "It's better to get a reaction, it's better than a mediocre response. Hopefully some people will enjoy it. I think it's not for everybody."
