Palme d’Or Winner WINTER SLEEP Opens January 23

Internationally acclaimed Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan has won prizes at major film festivals all over the world, but it wasn't until last May, after being nominated four times, that he finally took home what is probably the topmost prize of all, the Cannes Film Festival's Palme d'Or.

"Enthralling, Gorgeously Mounted" BELOVED SISTERS Opens at the Royal, Playhouse and Town Center
