Sofia Coppola just made history
Congrats to Sofia Coppola for making history at Cannes…although it’s an achievement that’s taken a shamefully long-time for us to see in the film festival’s story.
Coppola just won the Best Director prize for her super-well-received film The Beguiled, which is being billed as feminist remake of a Civil War-era horror flick made by Clint Eastwood in the 70’s.
Now are you seated? Coppola is the first woman to win this prize in…56 YEARS. Not 5-6. FIFTY-SIX. Before Coppola’s win this year, only one woman had been awarded the best director prize, a Soviet filmmaker named Yuliya Soinsteva back in 1961.
