Darjeeling takes the Golden Cub at Venice


From the Hollywood Reporter:

“Darjeeling Limited,” a comedy about a trio of brothers on a trip across India, was awarded its Golden Lion Cub by a jury of local youths studying at the Agiscuola, near Venice’s Lido. In 18 previous editions, the school children have correctly picked the winner of the festival’s top prize — Golden Lion — seven times.

The more prestigious prizes will be awarded Saturday. Update (8 September, 3.33 pm): The film did not win any of the more prestigious prizes at Venice, but the kids are alright.
