Sarandon And Besson Land Stockholm Film Festival Honours
Hollywood actress SUSAN SARANDON and French filmmaker LUC BESSON are due to accept high honours at the Stockholm Film Festival in Sweden next month (Nov09).
Sarandon, 63, will receive the lifetime achievement award at the event - with organisers hailing the star for the "reflection, seduction and rebellion" she has portrayed on the big screen throughout her career.
Her most famous roles include rebellious waitress Louise in 1991's Thelma and Louise and her Oscar-winning performance as Sister Helen in 1995 film Dead Man Walking.
Meanwhile, The Fifth Element director Besson, 50, has landed the festival's visionary award for his "relentless" exploration of film.
The 20th Stockholm International Film Festival will take place from 18 to 29 November (09).
