Lust, Caution

Indies in the Awards Mix

Coin: Financing for the Chinese-language pic came from River Road Ent. and Asian sources. Focus Features handled domestic and some foreign.

Buzz: Bold performance by newcomer Tang Wei could have a chance of slipping into a lighter femme field this year, though Tony Leung might have a tougher time. Helmer and Acad fave Ang Lee could see a third Oscar nom, while d.p. Rodrigo Prieto could bank another nom as well. Detailed design could garner craft category interest.

Kudos: Won the Golden Lion and cinematography prize at Venice. Nominated for three Spirit Awards (actor, actress, cinematography).
