Wearing red, Clint Eastwood, tapped into his past on Thursday night as he introduced “Jersey Boys” as the last screening of the 20th Los Angeles Film Festival. “I guess ‘A Fistful Of Dollars’ closed the Cannes Film Festival this year and now this film is gonna close this one,” gruffed the director.. “I hope we’re not setting a bad trend of closing theaters. But there’s a 50- year difference which I guess means if you hang around long enough good things can happen.”
The Los Angeles Film Festival move in 2010 raised downtown's cultural ethos, without becoming too glossy . . . for a film festival, that is. Jury and audience winners press release after the jump.
