CANNES 2014 AWARDS ANNOUNCED - WINTER SLEEP WINS PALME D'OR


In the 100th year of Turkish cinema, Nuri Bilge Ceylan dedicates his Palme d'Or win to those who have lost their lives in recent unrest in his nation. One of the favourites to win the Cannes Film Festival's top award, Winter Sleep beat other hotly-tipped titles such as Xavier Dolan's Mommy, which tied the Jury Prize with the work of a filmmaker over three times his age. Julianne Moore adds a Cannes Best Actress prize to her equivalent awards at both Venice and Berlin fests. Broadly, there were few surprises.
