Leigh wins in Venice

Guild member Mike Leigh has won the The Golden Lion for Best Film at the Venice Film Festival with Vera Drake. The star, Imelda Staunton, won Best Actress.

Speaking after the screening Leigh said: "I felt very strongly that it was time to deal with the issue of abortion directly, though in a way that poses a moral dilemma for you, the audience, and doesn't draw simple black and white conclusions."
