"Take Shelter" wins big at Cannes' Critics Week

Incroyable!

Jeff Nichols is coming back to America with the two top prizes from Cannes Film Festival's 50th Critics' Week.

This year's jury, headed by South Korean director Lee Chang-Dong, awarded his latest film, "Take Shelter," the Grand Prize for best feature film and the SACD Prize for best screenwriting.

Consider this a huge international coup for the Little Rock-born director and the film, his second.

(I can't think of a better piece of news to break using Rock Candy's 5,000th blog post!)
