Brad Pitt’s Movie Wins Top Prize in Cannes


Brad Pitt has done it again! The actor’s latest film, Tree of Life, took home top honors at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday. Winning the Palme d’Or award, the film, which stars Pitt, 47, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain, surprisingly received mixed reviews from movie-goers at the festival.

It was also an incredible day for Kirsten Dunst, 29, who won Best Actress for her role in Melancholia. Though those associated with that film had plenty of drama to deal with this past week, as director Lars von Trier was banned from Cannes last week for his Hitler-loving comments.

French actor Jean Dujardin won the prize for Best Actor for his role in the silent film The Artist, while Nicolas Winding Refn was honored as Best Director for his film Drive.

Prizes were awarded by the nine-member jury headed by Robert De Niro. The panel also included actors Uma Thurman and Jude Law
