‘The Child’ wins Palme d’Or

Jurors at the Cannes Film Festival decided “The Child” shall lead them, as Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne nabbed a second Palme d’Or (after one for 1999’s “Rosetta”), while U.S. filmmakers received a healthy chunk of the main prizes. In one of the few surprises at the 58th Cannes Film Festival, Tommy Lee Jones walked off with best actor for “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada,” the neo-Western he directed. Mexican writer Guillermo Arriaga won for the movie’s script, marking a rarity: Cannes jurors rarely bestow double honors on any movie. Jim Jarmusch copped the Grand Prix, traditionally seen as the runner-up award, for Focus Features’ “Broken Flowers.” In his acceptance speech at Saturday’s closing ceremonies, Jarmusch paid lengthy tribute to his fellow competition directors and the festival in general, noting, “The real honor (of competing here) was to be alongside some great filmmakers.”
