'45 Years' Leads Edinburgh Film Fest Winners

Charlotte Rampling also scooped up a Best Performance award for the film, shared with James Cosmo for his performance in redemption drama “The Pyramid Texts.” Earlier this year, Rampling won a Silver Bear for her portrayal of a woman in the middle of preparing for her 45th wedding anniversary when the body of her husband’s past girlfriend, who died 50 years ago in a fatal accident in the Swiss Alps and was perhaps his great love, is found.
