Leslie Caron visits Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival's Cinema Paradiso this weekend

For those seeking a return to Classic Hollywood Glamor this weekend, **The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival Cinema Paradiso** will present a Lifetime Achievement Award to Leslie Caron, star of **An American in Paris,** **Lili** and **Gigi.**

While considering a worthy dance partner to both Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly from 1950s musicals, Caron has worked steadily. On the big screen Caron costarred with Johnny Depp, Juliette Binoche and Lena Olin, while on the small screen, Caron portrayed an elderly rape victim on **Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit," in which she won an Emmy Award.

Leslie Caron will accept her Lifetime Achievement Award starting at 6PM at Cinema Paradiso. After a retrospective screening of her career and Q & A hosted by Film Professor Foster Hirsch, Leslie Caron will host a book signing for her autobiography, **Thank Heaven.** Then on Saturday night, Leslie Caron sets sail on the SUN DREAM to host our annual **Winterfest Boat Parade.** For ticket information and prices for each event, contact Cinema Paradiso at (954) 525-FILM.
