LONDON (AP) â Jack Bruce was part Mississippi Delta and part Carnaby Street. In his glorious heyday as bassist and lead vocalist of 1960s power trio Cream he helped create a sound that combined American blues and psychedelia to thrill audiences throughout the world.
British director Stephen Daldry, of "Billy Elliot" and "The Reader" fame, won the Rome Film Festival's top prize Saturday with his adventure thriller "Trash" set in Brazilian favelas. The film about children who forage in landfills for a living until they come across a wallet and key sought after by a corrupt police officer edged out 17 other contenders at the ninth edition of the festival, with prizes decided for the first time by the viewing public. Starring a trio of youngsters with no previous acting experience, the film sees the boys race to try and solve the riddle before the police can, helped along by an American priest and an aid worker, played by Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara. Richard Curtis, the man behind "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and "Notting Hill", wrote the script, based on Andy Mulligan's novel of the same name.
