Cannes: Sony Pictures Classics Takes Leigh’s Another Year


In the first major move of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival yesterday, Sony Pictures Classics picked up Mike Leigh's not-completely-depressing Another Year for domestic distribution. The film — about a happy married couple visited by miserable friends — is the odds-on favorite for this year's Palme d'Or and will definitely be nominated for Best Picture, forecasts the L.A. Times' Pete Hammond. [HR]
