The star of Gone Girl will receive the 26th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival’s (PSIFF) Breakthrough Performance Award on January 3.
“Rosamund Pike perfectly taps into Gillian Flynn’s complex character from the novel Gone Girl, bringing to life the privileged, manipulative and calculating Amy Dunne,” said film festival chairman Harold Matzner. “It’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role.”
Pike’s credits include An Education, The World’s End, Jack Reacher, Wrath Of The Titans, Johnny English Reborn and Hector And The Search For Happiness, among others.
Prior recipients of the Breakthrough Performance Award include Marion Cotillard, Lupita Nyong’o, Carey Mulligan, Felicity Huffman, Jennifer Hudson and Jeremy Renner.
The festival is scheduled to run from January 2-12.
