This year, the Cannes Film Festival celebrated a homegrown film as a French title took the top prize.
"La vie d'Adèle," known in English as "Blue Is the Warmest Color," won the Palme d'Or on Sunday as the film festival drew to a close. In addition to director Abdellatif Kechiche, stars Léa Seydoux ("Midnight in Paris"; "Inglourious Basterds") and Adèle Exarchopoulos were also honored with the prestigious Palme.
The Cannes Film Festival officially launched on Wednesday with the opening ceremony and the premiere of Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby."
