Cannes Film Festival Wrap Up

May 23rd, 2005 // 1 Comment

To some the highlight may have been Sophie Marceau pulling a Tara Reid, but Tommy Lee Jones will beg to differ.

Tommy Lee Jones had a good festival, winning best actor for his portrayal of a hardened ranch foreman in “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada,” which was his directorial debut. The film also won best screenplay.

Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne won the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday with “L’Enfant,” the story of a desperate delinquent who sells his newborn child for cash.

The best actress award went to Israel’s Hanna Laslo in “Free Zone,” which also starred Natalie Portman.

“Broken Flowers,” by American filmmaker Jim Jarmusch that stars Bill Murray and Sharon Stone, picked up the runners-up prize, the Grand Prix.

If you enjoy Sophie’s slip, why don’t you vote for the greatest International wardrobe malfunction while you’re at it.
