There was an overwhelming amount of love and support for Depp at the Cannes Film Festival. He has been mired in controversy over the defamation trial with his ex wife Amber Heard, which he won last year.

Talking about the film with which he is making his theatrical comeback, Jeanne Du Barry features Depp as King of France Louis XV, also known as Louis the Beloved. He was crowned the King of France at the age of 5 and his reign continued until his death in 1774. Helmed by Maïwenn, who also stars in it, the French film focuses on Jeanne, who was a working-class woman and used her charm and wit to work her way up the social hierarchy.
