Licorice Pizza
Licorice Pizza

Licorice Pizza, a coming-of-age drama set in the San Fernando Valley of the Seventies from Paul Thomas Anderson, was named Best Picture of 2021 by Atlanta Film Critics Circle.

New Zealand director Jane Campion’s return to filmmaking after a 12-year absence with The Power of the Dog was an AFCC favorite winning four awards include Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Cinematography,

This year’s Best Actress award was a tie between newcomer and musician Alana Haim in Licorice Pizza and a deeply sympathetic evocation by Kristen Stewart of the tortured, sensitive Diana Spencer.

The AFCC presented the awards for Best Breakthrough Performer to Agathe Rousselle, in director Julia Ducournau’s vanguard French body horror fantasia Titane.

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda won AFCC’s Special Award for Best First Feature Film for his directorial debut Tick, Tick…Boom!

The AFCC’s Best International Film Award went to Drive My Car, a moving ensemble film from a short story by acclaimed novelist Haruki Murakami and co-written and directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi.
