Hollywood actors Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Olsen will be honored at the upcoming Festival du Cinéma Américain de Deauville (Deauville Film Fest) in Normandy, France in September.
Pattinson and Olson will receive the Hollywood Rising Star Awards at the 41st edition of the film festival, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Pattinson will also attend the screening of his movie, “Life,” which will be premiered at the festival. In the film, Pattinson plays Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock, who was assigned to shoot pictures of legendary actor James Dean during a road trip in 1955.

Quentin Tarantino’s long-time producer Lawrence Bender will receive Deauville’s career tribute. The festival is also paying tributes to several actors, including Reeves, Bloom, Ian McKellen and Patricia Clarkson. A tribute will also be paid to American director and producer Orson Welles to mark the centenary of his birth.
