I have been lucky enough to see some great movies lately (well, it is Oscar season).
The first was Suffragette. An important story from our past which deserves to be told. Although, I was rather disappointed that Meryl Streep was only on film for less than ten minutes! Carey Mulligan was great, though. I would give this 4 out of 5 stars.
Next up was a very different film, The Revenant, violent in parts, quite gruelling (both to watch and to film, I believe) and both Leonardo Di Caprio (one of my favourite actors) and Tom Hardy were fantastic in it. But, does Leo deserve the Best Actor gong? No, I think that should go to the male lead in the third film I saw. 5 out of 5 stars for this film.
So, I think the the Best Actor is Eddie Remayne for The Danish Girl, and this is my favourite film of the three - 6 out of 5 stars (lol!). Again, an important story, so worth telling. The film is so beautifully photographed and Eddie Remayne is absolutely incredible in it. Now, whether he will win back-to-back Oscars is the question and, of course, Leo has been nominated many times and never won, so maybe this year the voters will think, "Poor Leo, we had better give him an Oscar, it is about time." But, my vote would definitely go to Eddie!
Love to know what you all think, Have a great Australia Day,
(Yay! A day off - to stitch (and do housework), watch the tennis and did I mention stitching?)
