The Reader

Well, we have only one more film after this to finish up the Best Picture/Best Director categories, Oscars that I don't think this film will be taking home. Not that it should not have been nominated (no that distinction goes to Slumdog Millionaire), but The Reader just doesn't come close to Milk.

However, though this is only the first Best Actress nominee we have seen (so I am talking out of my ass here), Kate Winslet is a revelation in this film and you should see it just to watch her in what has to be the Best Actress performance. She plays a person you could easily hate, but that never happens. Her character is harsh and brutal at times and yet, in the end, you feel for her. Great performance and she looks great in the nude as well.

Our yearly Oscar quest continues...
