Cannes film had to be stopped due to heckling
The world premiere screening of a Netflix movie has been stopped at Cannes because of audience heckling.

“Okja” – starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhall – is hotly tipped for success at the film festival.

But it’s controversial because the online streaming service has refused to show it in French cinemas.

The screening did eventually restart.
