Months of Meryl: THE RIVER WILD


"Great post and comments. Yes, Streep had to navigate the rough waters of being in her 40's! I do think she smashed through the glass ceiling for women since she persevered and then became an even bigger star in her 50's." - Sister Rona

"One of my favourite movies from my teen years - I'm shocked at how long ago this was released. It was Meryl that sold this movie for me and is the reason I saw it. At the time, and I still feel this way, she is the reason to watch and believe this film." -Filmboymichael

BEAUTIFUL INFO-PACKED SUBMISSION CHARTS. 

 

FOREIGN FILM PREDICTIONS
And the Nominees Are...
(alpha order)
Austria
4 noms | 2 wins
Amour


WINNER

Michael Haneke made Oscar inroads with White Ribbon and his international reputation goes a long way toward making each new film an event. This film about an 80 year old couple has been collecting trophies ever since Cannes.

REVIEW

 

Canada 
6 noms | 1 win
Rebelle (War Witch)

This bleak drama from Kim Nguyen is about a girl child soldier. If Oscar can handle it, it'll get nominated. But how much bleakness can they take in one year? See also Amour.

Chile
1st nomination!
NO

Though Chile's political true story lacks the epic beauty one traditionally associates with this category, it's a pretty grand entertainment and even an inspiring one.

REVIEW

Denmark

A Royal Affair

The film about a queen who falls for her king's physician is a sumptuous costume drama with a sharp political kick. With Mads Mikkelsen and rising starlet Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina)

CAPSULE THOUGHTS

 

Norway
6 nominations
Kon-Tiki

This adventure film from Joachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg is Norway's most expensive film ever made. It's launched a new star and charts the raft voyage across the Pacific of famous explorer Thor Heyerdahl
