Xavier Legrand’s first feature, Custody [+leggi anche:

The film won four César awards last night for Best French Film, Best Actress (Léa Drucker), Best Screenplay (which went to Legrand himself) and Best Editing (Yorgos Lamprinos). It’s worth noting that this is the sixth time a first feature has won the main prize at the César Awards, and is owed in part to the work of the film’s producer Alexandre Gavras (KG Productions), its French distribution company (Haut et Court, with 377,000 admission in France) and its international sales company Celluloid Dreams (about fifty countries have purchased Custody to date).
Legrand’s victory in a competition that seemed fairly open points to two relatively notable trends: the emergence of new award-winning talent (with Alex Lutz winning the Best Actor César for Guy [+leggi anche:

That’s not to say that established filmmakers were entirely swept aside by this new wave of emerging talent, The Sisters Brothers [+leggi anche:
