Ira Sachs’ Little Men won big on Saturday night, taking the top prize at the Deauville Film Festival.
The film, starring Greg Kinnear, bowed in January at Sundance.
The jury, headed by former French culture minister Frederic Mitterand, took the unusual step of awarding two second-place prizes, honoring Matt Ross’ Cannes Un Certain Regard directing prize winner Captain Fantastic and Todd Solondz’s Weiner-Dog. Both Ross and Solondz presented their films at the fest earlier in the week.
Captain Fantastic also captured the audience award, while Weiner-Dog also won the Kheil’s Revelation Prize, decided by a separate jury.
The main jury also featured Oscar-nominated Persopolis director Marjane Satrapi, American-French novelist Douglas Kennedy, director Radu Mihaileanu (The History of Love), French actresses Francoise Arnoul, Sara Forestier, Ana Girardot and French actors Eric Elmosnino and Emmanuel Mouret.
Anna Rose Holmer’s drama The Fits took the critics prize from a jury composed of French journalists.
