This movie was amazing! If you haven’t seen it, put it on your list of musts! Check out the trailer:
Penelope Cruz is fantastic in this film, as were all the actors but she was brilliantly crazed and very deserving of her best supporting actress golden globe nod. Rebecca Hall & Javier Bardem are also nominated for best actress & actor respectively for their roles in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and the film itself is nominated for best motion picture in the musical or comedy category. Of course, it is a bit odd to see Javier Bardem nominated next to James Franco for his work in Pineapple Express as the films couldn’t be more different. I wouldn’t say this film fits perfectly in the comedy category although I did have a few good laughs. I’m always somewhat baffled at how they categorize films and performances. For instance, does anyone know why Phillip Seymor Hoffman is considered a supporting actor in Doubt? Next on my list of movies to see is Slumdog Millionaire & the Wrestler (I actually was given the movie poster today after coming out of the theatre thereby making my collection of movie posters all the more eclectic!).
