Palm Springs honour for Saoirse


Actor Saoirse Ronan will be honoured at the upcoming 27th annual Palm Springs Internatio­nal Film Festival. The 21-year-old actor will receive the Internatio­nal Star Award at the gala to be held on January 2 at the Palm Springs Convention Center in California. “From her unforgetta­ble roles in Atonement, The Lovely Bones, Hanna and

The Grand Budapest Hotel, we have seen Saoirse grow from a young girl to the accomplish­ed actress she is today,” festival chairman Harold Matzner said. “In John Crowley’s new film Brooklyn, Ronan gives a mesmerisin­g performanc­e as a young woman from Ireland who is offered the chance of a new life in New York,” he added. — IANS
