Also getting the gala treatment in Zurich this year are four more Cannes highlights: Sean Baker’s The Florida Project; Claire Denis’ Un Beau Soleil Interieur with Juliette Binoche; Happy End from Austrian director Michael Haneke and The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Yorgos Lanthimos‘ follow-up to his crossover hit The Lobster.
