Sibling filmmakers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s “The Child,” about a 20-year-old petty crook suddenly faced with the responsibilities of fatherhood, won top honors at the Cannes Film Festival.
It was the second time a film by the Belgian brothers won the prestigious Palme d’Or, coming six years after their teen drama “Rosetta” took the main Cannes prize.
The award was presented Saturday by Hilary Swank and Morgan Freeman, who won Academy Awards in February for Clint Eastwood’s boxing saga “Million Dollar Baby.”
Sounds like a great movie.
Hope I get to check it out soon.
