Bérénice Bejo is being heralded for her Past achievements…
The 37-year-old Argentine actress won a best actress award at the 25th Palm Springs International Film Festival for her critically acclaimed role in the French/Iranian family drama The Past.
Bejo received the FIPRESCI Prize for Best Actress of the Year in a Foreign Language Film on Saturday during the closing ceremony of the festival.
“Bérénice Bejo’s portrait of a woman in profound transition, struggling to close the door on one relationship, trying to keep the other open, offers a symphony of emotions: regret, longing, love, hurt, need,” festival juror Steven Rea said at the ceremony.
“Her character may waver, but Bejo’s performance stays straight and true,” he added.
The French-language film was directed by Oscar-winning Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi.
It’s the latest award for the Oscar-nominated actress’ performance in the past.
She won the Best Actress award at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
Bejo is also nominated for Most Promising Actress from the Magritte Awards, which are given annually for excellence of Belgian francophone cinematic achievements.
