The Venice Film Festival has handed the Golden Lion award to Darren Aronofsky‘s The Wrestler. It would obviously have been a nice double-whammy if they’d given the Best Actor prize to comeback kid Mickey Rourke, whose lead performance in Aronofsky’s film was strongly praised here and there. (The Wrestler will screen for TIFF press on Monday.) The only other English-speaking winner was Jennifer Lawrence, who won the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor or Actress for her performance in Guillermo Arriaga‘s The Burning Plain.
