Brit’s indie flock

British Independent Film Awards honors best A show for all ages

Newbies and seasoned players rubbed shoulders Nov. 28 at the British Independent Film Awards. Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn, the frosh helmer of best pic winner “Control,” took home kudos, as did the pic’s up-and-coming thesps Sam Riley and Toby Kebbell.

Riley was working in a warehouse folding shirts when he was cast by Corbijn, who said the thesp brought “an innocence and freshness that I was hoping for, but never thought I would find.”

At the other end of the career spectrum, prize winners Daniel Craig, Ray Winstone and Judi Dench all thanked those who had inspired them. “It was people like Richard Harris and Albert Finney that opened the doors for people like me,” Winstone said. Craig, winner of the Variety award, paid tribute to legendary casting agent Mary Selway, who had helped pluck him from obscurity. Dench praised “Notes on a Scandal” scribe Patrick Marber, who also won an award.
