LOS ANGELES, California--"We had a ten-minute standing ovation during the official screening," Robbie Tan excitedly told us via text message about the reaction to "Foster Child," which he produced, after its official screening Friday evening at the Directors' Fortnight in Cannes.

"The audience was absolutely moved by 'Foster Child,' " Robbie added. We are back in LA now from Cannes but the ecstatic text messages by the folks behind the Pinoy film, directed by Brillante "Dante" Mendoza, excited us as well.

Congratulations to the people behind 'Foster Child!' :)
