Having renowned director as its helmer and garnering rave reviews from movie critics for 's performance, "The Exchange" came to the 61st Cannes Film Festival Competition with a head start. However, it seems that the film used to be known as "Changeling" didn't deliver that well. At Cannes' coveted awards ceremony on Sunday, May 25, the thriller tidbit was left without any awards.
For the coveted Palme d'Or award, the Universal Pictures' movie about a mother fighting to find her missing son has to admit defeat from the French movie " (Entre les Murs)" by director Laurent Cantet. Aside from losing Palme d'Or, both Eastwood and Jolie are also singled out by Turkish helmer Nuri Bilge Ceylan and Brazilian actress Sandra Corveloni who got Best Director prize for and Best Actress kudo for "Linha de Passe" in respective order. Commenting on the lost, Jolie said, "If that happens and it goes to somebody that it boosts their career, that's great. Winning is not the important thing. It's fun to be here with something we are actually very proud of."
