The Holiday Films Are Coming, From 'moses' To 'annie' : Npr

Turner , in which Tim Spall courts an Oscar nomination by grunting and snorting as he paints his masterpieces The Imitation Game Benedict Cumberbatch more info plays Alan Turing , the gay British math genius who cracked Germany's Enigma Code in World War http://alvinaraff.soup.io/post/478953369/Sohh-com-French-Montana-Juggles-Khlo-Kardashian II American Sniper Clint Eastwood's look at an Iraq war veteran (Bradley Cooper) who was the deadliest sharpshooter in U.S. history Unbroken Based on the non-fiction book about a former Olympic track star who got shot down over the Pacific in World War II . The American spent 47 days clinging to a raft, only to be plucked from it by the Japanese, who tried to use him for propaganda. Unbroken was directed by Angelina Jolie, and unlike previous years when it was startling to see even one woman director leading a prestige project during awards season, this year there are two. The other is Ava DuVernay's measured, majestic Selma, which chronicles Martin Luther King's 1965 campaign for voting rights , and the opposition of Alabama Gov. George Wallace. And while women directed those stories of struggle and resistance, they're also out in front of the camera in other potential award contenders: Julianne Moore suffering from early-onset Alzheimer's in Still Alice; Reese Witherspoon as Cheryl Strayed, trekking more than a thousand miles to put her life in order in Wild; and Amy Adams, playing 1950s artist Margaret Keane as she struggles against a husband who claims credit for her hugely popular paintings in Big Eyes. Art-house audiences will have a wealth of foreign films to choose from, including Two Days One Night, the Dardenne brothers' wrenching (and timely) story of workplace downsizing, and Leviathan, which looks at a vodka-soaked landscape of Russian corruption.
