British actor Jude Law will receive the Karlovy Vary lifetime achievement honor, the President’s Award, at this year’s event.
The Czech Festival will screen Anthony Minghella’s “The Talented Mr. Ripley” in Law’s honor. Law received his first Oscar nomination for his portrayal of spoiled rich boy Dickie Greenleaf in the Mingella adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith crime novel. Law won a best actor BAFTA for the same role.
More recently, Law has appeared as Dr. Watson in Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes” and as part of the A-list cast that replaced the deceased Heath Ledger in Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.”
The 45th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival runs from July 2-10.

i am so excited
because I am from slovakia
and it makes me happy because
he will be so closely.
i love him
Me too Ana, I think that is a great honor for him. I hope they advertise this event all over the world- not just in Czech
America is so neglectful when it comes to him- that bothers me.
I just hope he begins to get bigger and better parts in movies now. He’s established himself as an actor–he needs a movie where he can play a leading man.
