Transport Strike Causing Cannes Concern

Movie stars, as a rule, do not like to wait around. So one can imagine that the organizers of the Cannes Film Festival are more than a little bit concerned about a country-wide transport strike in France which is threatening to make the logistics of the festival a bit tricky. Cannes opens on Wednesday, and while some luminaries of the film world have already arrived, many are finding themselves stranded in Paris, at least temporarily.
