Moon, the first film by David Bowie’s son Duncan Jones, won the top award at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.  The Michael Powell Award for Best New British Feature Film is the highest award a film can garner from the jury at the EIFF.  In the citation on the awards the Jury states, “We award Moon for its singular vision and remarkably assured direction as well as for the inspired manner in which it transcends genre. The central performance by Sam Rockwell embodies the film’s emotional complexity and compelling philosophical perspective.”

We here at CrackedActor are very happy for Duncan Jones.  This award, as well as the immense amount of critical praise, is a remarkable accomplishment for a first-time director.  I hope this latest award increases the chance that Sony will allow a nation-wide release of Moon.

    Good on the boy. Still haven’t gotten out to see it but the Academy may just send it to me.

    I’m hoping that if it never comes out here in Florida that at the very least Netflix will get a bunch of copies.
