I am surprised this film isn’t receiving any buzz. It looks amazing.
The drama stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and acting giant Christopher Walken. It is due to be released in November
Can someone please put this film in the predictions centre? I would assume Best Actor for Hoffman, Best Supporting Actress for Keenever and Best Supporting Actor for Walken.
No reviews? Have you seen it?
No, but the trailer looks pretty good
Great to have the thread here but maybe a tad early on the predictions center side of things.. Hoffman will likely be nominated in Lead for Best Actor in The Master, especially considering his performance is being compared to that of Orson Welles in Citizen Kane.
This sounds like a nice small movie that will get OK reviews and quickly disappear from sight. It was passed over by the top specialized distribs, and is being handled by the Canadian compani EOne, which is likely in the future to be more of a factor (they are expanding quickly) but at this point have never been anywhere close to being in the awards picture.
Its early Nov release date looks like they found a pre-Thanksgiving hole to open in NY/LA, and then Thanksgiving in other big cities, but my guess is will struggle to get much attention.
Obviously, great reviews and other factors could change this. But the optics my sense of following release patterns over a few decades is that this is a longshot in any category.
