Paprika Steen Wins Best Actress Award at Karlovy Vary

Bolstered by what Variety calls a "fearless, tour-de-force performance" Paprika Steen's has taken the Best Actress Award at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival for her new film APPLAUSE. The role was written especially for Paprika, who plays an arrogant aging diva struggling with addiction so she can regain custody of her two sons.

The film is set for limited release in Denmark at the end of September. I'm hoping that the film plays Toronto and that I might actually get to meet Paprika in person at last. This is one we'll definitely keep an eye out for!
