DEAUVILLE, France -- Andre Techine and his jury breathed life into Karen Moncrieff's "The Dead Girl", awarding it the 33rd Deauville American Film Festival's grand prize as the 10-day celebration of trans-Atlantic cinema wrapped Sunday night.
The discovery of the mysterious dead girl shatters the lives of complete strangers tied together by her brutal murder in this picture. The film was written and directed by Moncrieff and produced by First Look Studios and Lakeshore Entertainment. It features Toni Collette, Rose Byrne, Brittany Murphy, Mary Beth Hurt, Nick Searcy, Marcia Gay Harden, Kerry Washington, Giovanni Ribisi, James Franco, Josh Brolin, Piper Laurie and Mary Steenburgen.
The movie has yet to set a release date in France, but will be distributed in the territory by Sonatine Films.
"The fact that you, with your culture and your film culture, are here honoring American movies is really astounding to me," Moncrieff said in her acceptance of the honor. Techine's jury awarded the runner-up Jury Prize to "Never Forever", Gina Kim's moving portrait of a woman who embarks on a series of sexual encounters with a Korean immigrant worker as she struggles to save her marriage. »
