"Man on Wire" is Critics' Choice

The Critic's Choice Award for best documentary was given just now to "Man on Wire" about French artist and Shokan resident Philippe Petit, who in 1974 walked across a wire that had been strung illegally between the twin towers of the World Trade Center. The documentary by British director James Marsh was partially shot in Ulster County.

The award was presented by neighbor Melissa Leo of Accord, who's up for best actress.

One down. One to go.
