American media says that this is the film to beat in this year’s Oscar race for Best Picture. Although, as of this writing, the Oscar nominations have not yet been announced this film is a virtual lock for a Best Picture nod. It is the type of film that Oscar voters love. It is grand. It is majestic. It is ambitious. It is gorgeously shot. It has dazzling digital effects. And it has a great but tragic love story.
This is the first movie, after The Dark Knight, that warrants repeat viewing. At the cinemas. Watch this!
