Cannes Film Festival 2015 Winners List

Here are the winners of the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival 2015.

Dheepan, a mostly Tamil-language drama about a makeshift family of Sri Lankan refugees in Paris, won the top prize Palme d’Or on Sunday night.

According to Variety, the award “was greeted with some surprise and a mixture of boos, shrugs and applause from the international press corps watching the ceremony.”

The film had respectable but tepid reviews since its release.
