We Need to Talk About Kevin triumphs at LFCC Awards

20th January 2012

The acclaimed adaptation of Lionel Shriver's bestselling novel We Need to Talk About Kevin has scooped the coveted best British film prize at the London Film Critics' Circle Awards.

Director Lynne Ramsay collected the award at a star-studded ceremony at BFI Southbank in London, where the big screen version of John le Carre's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy also won the technical achievement prize for Maria Djurkovic's production design.

Another big winner at the event was Kenneth Branagh, who received the best supporting actor gong for his role as Laurence Olivier in the adaptation of Colin Clark's My Week With Marilyn.

On collecting the award, Branagh revealed that he had sent Olivier a letter as an aspiring actor, asking for tips on how to brush up his performances.

'His advice was to have a bash and hope for the best , which was a simple and very effective way of saying you've just got to do it,' he added.

The big winner on the night was contemporary silent film and early Oscar favourite The Artist, which picked up the best director, best actor and overall film of the year awards.
