Carey MulliganBritish actress Carey Mulligan is set to be honored as this year's breakthrough star at California's upcoming Palm Springs International Film Festival.
The Oscar-nominated An Education star will be celebrated for her work in films Never Let Me Go and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps at the festival's awards gala at the Palm Springs Convention Center on January 8th.

Festival chairman Harold Matzner calls the 25 year old "an actress of extraordinary talent and versatility," adding, "In her most recent performances as the estranged daughter of Gordon Gekko in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps to Never Let Me Go, where her character learns that life isn't always what it seems, she brings uncommon vision and depth to her art."

The 22nd annual Palm Springs International Film Festival runs from January 6th-17th.
