Celebrations on the ‘red offcut’ have continued throughout the week, as Leonardo Dicaprio accepted plaudits for his portrayal of a man mauled by a bear rug. This was a career defining moment for the actor, who had previously focused on lighter roles in ‘Dirty Rattan Scoundrels’ and ‘The Green Pile’.
His agent said: ‘We were concerned that a film about matting might carpet bomb. But the underlaying subtext struck a chord with the public, who were floored by the rich tapestry of emotions’.
