Mullan wins San Sebastian's top prize
Scottish director/actor Peter Mullan picked up the top prize at Spain's San Sebastian film festival on Saturday (25Sep10) for his film Neds.
The Trainspotting star was awarded the Golden Shell - the international movie event's highest accolade - for his coming-of-age tale, which is set in 1970s Glasgow.
The film also won its lead star, Scot newcomer Conor McCarron, the trophy for Best Actor.
It is Mullan's second major directorial triumph - his movie The Magdalene Sisters won the Venice film festival's revered Golden Lion award in 2002.
