I am a confessed anglophile. I love things British. So, even though I am not a big fan of award shows on the whole, I had to tune into the British Academy Awards last night for about 40 minutes, just to see what the “more intelligent” English speakers think is really good entertainment. Not surprisingly, several of the films that won awards in Britain were the ones that have won awards here. But after my brief viewing of the show, I had added the following films to my must-see list for this year:
Girl With A Pearl Earring (I read the book, so I already wanted to see this one.)
Cold Mountain ( I tried to read the book, but couldn’t get into it. So the movie is the next best thing.)
Lost in Translation (The premise is fascinating, and Bill Murray is always good.)
Has anybody who reads this seen any of these? Let me know your thoughts.
