'The Tree of Life,' 'The Descendants' Reign Supreme with Denver-area Film Critics



Released on: January 11, 2012, 7:51 pm
Author: Christian Toto
Industry: Media

Denver, CO The Denver Film Critics Society has given director Terrence Malick's impressionistic portrait of a '50s-era family and the origins of life the group's highest honor.

"The Tree of Life," starring Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain and Sean Penn, was chosen by DFCS as the Best Picture of 2011 this week, while "The Descendants" won three awards, including Best Screenplay.

DFCS's annual awards celebrate the finest achievement in film as chosen by a diverse group of Colo.-based film journalists.

Acting nods went to Pitt for his complicated turn as a baseball executive reinventing the rules of his game in "Moneyball," and Meryl Streep for her latest astonishing performance as Great Britain's groundbreaking "Iron Lady."

Chastain's busy 2011, including sterling appearances in "Take Shelter," "The Tree of Life," "The Help" and "The Debt," made her the runaway choice for the year's Breakout Star, while director Gore Verbinski's neo-western "Rango" moseyed off with the Best Animated Film award.

"The 2011 film lineup may have lacked that awards-sweeping entry, but the breadth of films spoke to the vision of the modern filmmaker," said DFCS co-director Christian Toto. "Many of the categories were won by a single vote."

"The Artist," the magnificent ode to the silent film era, earned a Best Director tie for Michel Hazanavicius as well as Best Score.

The Denver Film Critics Society is comprised of print journalists, bloggers, TV personalities and film scholars across the Front Range. Voting was conducted from Jan. 1-4, 2012.
