The 67th edition of the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival is in the history books. While this year might not have been as overwhelmingly strong as previous years, there were several films that impressed the crowds at the Croisette, including Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher with Channing Tatum and Steve Carell.

However, it was Winter Sleep that came away with the biggest prize of all, the Palme D’Or. The film runs three hours and was directed by acclaimed Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan. Jane Campion and the rest of the jury decided it was the best film they had seen in competition.
Julianne Moore won the Best Actress prize for her role in David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars and Timothy Spall won Best Actor for his performance in Mike Leigh’s Mr. Turner.
Miller didn’t go home empty handed though. He won Best Director for Foxcatcher. The Wonders (Les Merveilles) won the Grand Prix and Xavier Dolan's Mommy and Jean-Luc Godard's Goodbye to Language tied for the jury prize.
