Holds your attention but why the Oscar nominations?
I thought the film was an average film with decent though not superb performances. The screenplay held your attention because of the nature of the story. However, I am amused how the script/screenplay of this film got nominated for an Oscar. Do people confuse interesting subjects for good scripts? And the nomination for best song? I must have no ear for music...Many Oscar nominations have been unusual--these are two of them.
