The 70th Venice Film Festival is a wrap and the award-winners have been announced.  While showcasing some of the world’s top talent, the festival also serves to illustrate just how out of touch I am personally with the global cinematic world.  While the overall award for Best Film (the Golden Lion) went to Gianfranco Rosi’s Sacro Gra, a couple of other notable names made the list: Tye Sheridan earned the Best Young Actor award for his work in David Gordon Green’s Joe, and Gabe Klinger’s Double Play: James Benning and Richard Linklater won the Best Documentary on Cinema award.  Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope earned the Best Screenplay Award for Stephen Frears’ Philomena.
