Palm Springs honors ‘Young Adult’ ensemble

Vanguard award recognizes Reitman, Cody, Theron, Oswalt

The ensemble from “Young Adult” will receive the Vanguard Award at the 23rd annual Palm Springs International Film Festival. Helmer Jason Reitman will be joined by the film’s stars, Charlize Theron and Patton Oswalt, and screenwriter Diablo Cody when he accepts the award at a Jan. 7 gala held at the Palm Springs Convention Center.

“The filmmakers and cast represent the some of the best and most exciting filmmaking work of the year and have delivered a biting black comedy as deeply poignant as it is funny,” said festival chairman Harold Matzner.

Reitman joins previously announced honorees George Clooney, Glenn Close, Michel Hazanavicius, Octavia Spencer and Michelle Williams. The festival runs Jan. 5-16.
