Jessica Chastain Honored by Palm Springs Film Festival

The 29th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival will present Jessica Chastain with the Charman’s Award for Molly’s Game in a ceremony to be held at the Palm Springs Convention Center next January 2, Variety is reporting.

“Jessica Chastain is an incredible actress who has continuously challenged herself with complex roles throughout her career,” said Festival Chairman Harold Matzner. “In her latest film, Molly’s Game, Chastain brings to life Molly Bloom’s story of a determined woman who goes from being an Olympic skier to making millions running an exclusive high-stakes poker game.”

Chastain received the PSIFF Spotlight Award in 2012, and received an Academy Award nomination for “The Help.” Past recipients of the Chairman’s Award include Amy Adams, Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Richard Gere, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.
