Last night Little Miss Sunshine was handed the Deauville Film Festival’s Grand Prix award — hooray for that. The smart, sometimes darkly-shaded comedy, directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris and written by Michael Arndt, “was met with loud applause and raucous laughter when it was shown at the festival ,” blah, blah. Deauville’s Jury Prize went to Ryan Fleck ‘s “Half Nelson”, and the award for Best Screenplay and the International Critics’ Prize went to Laurie Collyer‘s Sherrybaby.
