In conjunction with this year's Berlin Film Festival, @SuicideRoom star Jakub Gierszal has been named one of European cinema's top ten rising stars of 2012. Chosen by an esteemed international jury, the Shooting Stars 2012 recognition celebrates Europe's best young actors. The jury honored Gierszal with the following high praise:
From the moment you see him, it is clear that Gierszal was born to be on the big screen. Revealing a kaleidoscope of emotions, his ability to draw you into a story is unparalleled. He is touching, believable, sensitive - a pure and unique talent.
Gierszal, who has also been described by the media as "the Polish James Dean" can now be seen by US audiences in the chilling gay drama, @SuicideRoom (on DVD and digital from Wolfe starting March 13th).
