Cannes you lend me fifteen million dollars?

The star-studded and highly entertaining documentary SEDUCED AND ABANDONED follows Alec Baldwin and director James Toback during the 2012 Cannes film festival, as they attend meeting after meeting in an effort to finance their movie "Last Tango in Tikrit". However, it is hard to see this as anything more than a ruse to get financiers, directors and movie stars such as Ryan Gosling, Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Roman Polanski and Jessica Chastain to talk candidly about the relationship between the art of cinema and its eternal muse and nemesis – money.
