Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival, this deeply moving French-language film by cinema historyâ??s greatest pair of brother directors delves into the emotional life of troubled eleven-year-old Cyril, showing once again that no one charts the wilds of childhood more precisely than the they. These masters of modern cinema have won two Golden Palms at previous Cannes festivals as well as Grand Jury Prizes. This filmâ??s screening is timed to connect with the speech of Childrenâ??s Defense Fund Head Marian Wright Edelman, who will talk on campus in the OCU Distinguished Speaker Series event, March 4.
