Description

Before making the Sri Lankan immigrant drama "Dheepan," French director Jacques Audiard acknowledged he couldn't have even found his characters' native country on a map. Audiard premiered "Dheepan" on Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival where critics warmly greeted the latest from the director of the Oscar-nominated "A Prophet" and the acclaimed "Rust and Bone." ''Dheepan" is about a former militant, a woman and a young girl who flee their civil war-ravaged Sri Lanka for France with the passports of a deceased family. The film, among the movies vying for Cannes' top honor, the Palme d'Or, has been acquired by IFC and Sundance Selects for U.S. distribution. http://news.yahoo.com/sri-lankan-immigrant-drama-dheepan-finds-home-cannes-170837145.html http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://wochit.com
