No, not that Bruce.
The Cannes 2013 jury, led by Steven Spielberg, announced its winners today:
- Palme d'Or: “Blue is the Warmest Color”
- Grand Prix: “Inside Llewyn Davis”
- Actor: Bruce Dern, “Nebraska,” directed by Alexander Payne
- Actress: Berenice Bejo, “The Past”
- Director: Amat Escalante, “Heli”
- Screenplay: Jia Zhangke, “Tian Zhu Ding” (“A Touch of Sin”)
- Jury Prize: “Soshite Chichi Ni Naru” (“Like Father, Like Son”), directed by Kore-Eda Hirokazu
I also heard good things about James Gray's “The Immigrant,” starring Marion Cotillard and Joaquin Phoenix; J.C. Chandor's “All is Lost,” starring Robert Redford; James Toback's “Seduced and Abandoned,” about the difficulty of raising money for movies; and Steven Soderbergh's “Behind the Candelabra,” about Liberace, which P and I are about to watch on HBO.
