According to its synopsis, the title character, “uses her intelligence and allure to climb the rungs of the social ladder one by one. She becomes the favorite of King Louis XV who, unaware of her status as courtesan, regains through her his appetite for life.” Jeanne is played by French actress Maïwenn, who also directed the film. The movie’s Cannes premiere comes less than a year after the conclusion of Johnny’s contentious court battle with his ex-wife, Amber Heard.
