Cannes 2005 Winners! Dardennes, Jarmusch, and Tommy Lee Jones!

The directors of Rosetta and The Son, two films I dearly love, have just won the coveted Palme D’Or at Cannes for their latest film The Child. America may not know it, the Academy is too narrow-minded to appreciate it, but the Dardennes Brothers are two of the finest filmmakers in the world.

Jim Jarmusch and Bill Murray should be thrilled, having won the Grand Prize for Broken Flowers.

And Best Actor… Tommy Lee Jones??

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    I can’t wait for Tideland, plus it was filmed in my home province of Saskatchewan.

    After The Son made a whopping $65,000 in the U.S., winning the Palm might have been the only way The Child gets American distribution. Good job, jurors.
