Jessica Chastain will be honoured at the Deauville American Film Festival.

The 'Lawless' actress is to be recognised as the next honoree during the festival - which is set to take place in Deauville, France, this September - after impressing its director, Bruno Barde, with her "grace, talent and beauty", reports Digital Spy.

He explained: "The tribute is a token of our affection, admiration, recognition and esteem for the talent of the recipient.

"For the past few years, we have been paying tribute to those actresses who embody the cinema of today and who will form the legacy of tomorrow.

"We salute her grace and talent and the beauty of the truth she brings to her performance."

Barde added that the 37-year-old actress - who earned Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe-nominations for her role in 'The Help' and won the Golden Globe for Best Actress for her part in the 2012 military thriller 'Zero Dark Thirty' - has earned the title through her constant stream of attention-grabbing performances.

He said: "When we first discovered Jessica Chastain, we had the definite feeling that here was someone special on-screen. Through her successive roles, she has confirmed her emotional capacity to grab the limelight."

Chastain can next be seen in 'Interstellar', 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby', 'Miss Julie' and Guillermo del Toro's 'Crimson Peak', in which she stars alongside Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam.
