Rodriguez isn’t just a hit in South Africa and the United States…
The 70-year-old Mexican American singer, or at least the film about him, has been heralded by one film critics group in Canada.
The Vancouver Film Critics Circle has just announced the nominees for its 13th annual awards; and the group has nominated Searching for Sugar Man for Best Documentary.
The critically acclaimed film, directed by Malik Bendjelloul, will face off against Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry and How to Survive a Plague.
Meanwhile, the French fantasy drama film Holy Motors, starring Eva Mendes, was nominated in the Best Foreign Film category, along with Amour and The Intouchables.
The Vancouver Film Critics Circle awards ceremony will be held on January 7, 2013.
