Jessica Chastain will receive the Golden Icon award at the Zurich Film Festival.

Chastain will present her latest film “Memory” at the festival alongside director Michel Franco and co-star Peter Sarsgaard on October 1. The film was presented in Venice, where Sarsgaard won the award for best actor.

“Memory” follows Sylvia (Chastain), a social worker who lives a simple, structured life around her daughter, her job, and her AA meetings. This is interrupted when Saul (Sarsgaard) follows her home from her high school reunion. Their meeting deeply impacts them both by opening the door to the past.

In an interview with VarietyFranco had said: “Jessica is possibly the best actress in the United States right now, it is no exaggeration to say that she is the best actress in the world.”

Festival artistic director Christian Jungen said: “Jessica Chastain is one of the most eminent actresses of her generation. Known for her clever choice of roles, she is also a virtuoso when it comes to imbuing her characters with profound depth. She never fails to captivate with her charisma and grace, but her characters are invariably down to earth. “Jessica is a true icon of American cinema.”

Previous winners of the Golden Icon Award include Glenn Close, Hugh Grant, Diane Keaton, Richard Gere, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sean Penn, Sharon Stone and Ben Kingsley.

The Zurich Film Festival will take place from September 28 to October 8. The European premiere of Kristoffer Borgli’s satire “Dream Scenario”, starring Nicolas Cage, will open the festival. A documentary about musician Pete Doherty, “Peter Doherty — Stranger in My Own Skin,” will have its world premiere in the festival’s Sounds section.
