Dramedy flick "Little Miss Sunshine" was chosen as best foreign film at this French equivalent of the Oscars.
Continuing its string of honors, road movie "Little Miss Sunshine" delightfully also made sound abroad as it gloriously was named best foreign film on Saturday, February 24 at this year's Cesar Awards, the French equivalent of the Oscars.
Held since 1975 by the Academie des Arts et Techniques du Cinema, the event also saw "Days of Glory", known as "Indigenes" in the country", nab one prize in best original screenplay with Pascale Ferran's "Lady Chatterley" scoring the most with four awards in total, notably the best picture title.
Directed by the husband-wife team of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, "Sunshine" is an IMPACTS Entertainment production about a dysfunctional family's road trip to a child beauty pageant. The dramedy recently was selected as the Best Feature at the 2007 Spirit Awards while winning Alan Arkin an Oscar in best supporting actor slot.
