Monday, May, 16th, the Festival de Cannes will welcome Robert De Niro in the Grand Theatre Lumière of the Palais des Festivals for a unique and special screening in Official Selection of Hands of Stone  by Venezuelan director Jonathan Jakubowicz.

The movie is about the common history of Panamanian boxer Roberto Duràn (Edgar Ramírez) and manager and coach Ray Arcel (Robert De Niro) who is going to take him to the highest worldwide successes of the ring in the ’70s and ’80s, including legendary fights against Sugar Ray Leonard.

“I’m excited to be coming back to Cannes especially with this movie Hands of Stone  that I’m so proud of, said Robert De Niro. This movie is uplifting, triumphant and a good time for audiences, so I’m looking forward to seeing my friends from across the world of cinema in joining us for this fun event.”

Hands of Stone  is produced and distributed by the Weinstein Company. Harvey Weinstein declared: “Hands of Stone  is vintage De Niro. Anyone wh‎o knows Bob, knows what a passion he has for boxing and his huge input into this movie made it very realistic and smart. On behalf of the company, we are thrilled that the Festival de Cannes chose to honor Bob this year with a special screening. It promises to be a fun time and a fantastic night to pay tribute to one of the great men of our industry.”
