Poor Naomi Watts and Matthew McConaughey’s The Sea of Trees movie was booed at Cannes last Saturday. The drama about love, loss and suicide, directed by Gus Van Sant, drew unintended laughs from the discerning film festival crowd that’s known for getting vocal. In an awkward press conference afterwards, McConaughey stood by the film, but said viewers have as much right to boo as they do to applaud. Perhaps he’s right, but unless I’m watching Punch and Judy I prefer audiences with better manners.
