Donald Trump’s biopic The Apprentice premieres at Cannes 2024, sparks controversy over rape scene

While Donald Trump’s hush money trial entered its sixth week in New York, an origin story for the Republican presidential candidate premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday, unveiling a scathing portrait of Trump in the 1980s. The Apprentice, directed by the Iranian Danish filmmaker Ali Abbasi, stars Sebastian Stan as Trump. The central relationship of the movie is between Trump and Roy Cohn (Jeremy Strong), the defense attorney who was the chief counsel to Joseph McCarthy’s 1950s Senate investigations.
