Jessica Chastain, one of the jury members at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, said the representation of women on film in 2017 is surprising and disturbing. “This is the first time I watched 20 films in 10 days, and I love movies, and the one thing I really took away from this experience is how the world views women.
