Just because this year's Tribeca Film Festival has a trimmer slate doesn't mean it has skimped when it comes to star power. Meg Ryan (Serious Moonlight), Jessica Biel (Easy Virtue) and Matthew Broderick (Wonderful World) are just a few of the stars with movies at the fest; expect new work from directors Steven Soderbergh (The Girlfriend Experience) and Woody Allen (Whatever Works) to be big draws as well. What else is in store? Check out this slideshow and find out.
