Duvall And Murray Share Best Actor Prize
Actors ROBERT DUVALL and BILL MURRAY were both winners at the 27th Turin Film Festival Awards as they shared the Best Actor prize for their roles in GET LOW.
Jurors at the event, which ran from 13 to 21 November (09), decided the duo should both collect the honour after putting in two moving performances in Get Low, about a man who throws his own funeral party before his death.
The Special Jury Prize was also split between two films, Sherry White's Crackie and Damien Chazelle's Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench, while Catalina Saavedra was named Best Actress for her role as the title character in Sebastian Silva's La Nana.
Director Pietro Marcello scored a $37,000 (£23,000) prize as his picture La Bocca del Lupo was selected as the Best Film, marking the first time an Italian production has taken the top honour at the Italian festival, which recognises the work of young directors.
