July 22, 2016, Stony Brook, NY-- Scottish actor, Olivier and Emmy Award star of The Carer, Brian Cox, was presented with the Stony Brook Film Festival Career Achievement Award for his work in over 200 films and television programs and even more stage productions in the UK, the U.S. and around the world. In The Carer, Brian Cox soars in his role as an aging lion of the theater who has isolated himself and bullied his care givers. Director János Edelényi was presented with the coveted Opening Night trophy as The Carer was selected from over 2,000 entries to open the 21st Annual Stony Brook Film Festival presented by Island Federal Credit Union. The screening on Thursday evening, July 21 had 800 film festival patrons attending.
