    Reaction of the critics

    Moreover, a group of Spanish women filmmakers said they were “very surprised” by the film festival. According to Cristina Andreu, president of Spain’s Association of Female Filmmakers. She said “these remarks reflect poorly on the festival and its leadership and send a disastrous message to the public.

    Underline “it’s okay to be a bad actor as long as you’re good”. Besides this, the British court denied Depp’s appeal of the slander case against The Sun, which accused him of domestic violence. In March, the court said Depp’s appeal had “no real prospect of success.”
