Jeff Nichols is coming back to America with the two top prizes from Cannes Film Festival's 50th Critics' Week.
This year's jury, headed by South Korean director Lee Chang-Dong, awarded his latest film, "Take Shelter," the Grand Prize for best feature film and the SACD Prize for best screenwriting.
Consider this a huge international coup for the Little Rock-born director and the film, his second.
