21st Stockholm International Film Festival Award Winners


A few hours ago the fest announced the winners and here they are.

Best Film: Winter’s Bone, Debra Granik, USA
By unanimous decision, the jury surrendered to a world so fully described by the director and a protagonist's dilemma in a community seldom represented in America. Through her heroine, the director paints an original portrait of a matriarchy who, by turns, warns, punishes, and ultimately offers an unlikely deliverance. The story and performances worked together to realize an uncompromised vision.
