    Official trailer: bit.ly/1jSrlBn
    The film is about three boys who find a wallet filled with money and an ID that brings conflict with the local police. Although the trailer is mainly in Portugese and doesn’t give much away. what do you think?

    Rooney Mara will be playing Sister Olivia, an NGO worker trying to help the three boys, and Martin Sheen will be playing “Father Juilliard”. Will this get Mara another Oscar nomination? Will this finally get Sheen an Oscar nomination?

    Opinions?

    I think it’s an effective trailer.

     It reminds me somewhat of City of God, a truly fabulous film btw, sepia tones and all.

    Outside of Billy Eliot, I’m not particularly a huge fan of Daldry’s direction, but he does manage to garner Oscar noms and even wins for his cast. Plus, this is the Academy’s chance to show us all that they weren’t wrong nominating the (wonderful) Roony Mara once again.

    I didnt notice Martin Sheen in the trailer btw. I’ll watch it again. I’d love to see him get a nomination, for this, or for any upcoming film he’s in.

    I have reservations about this one. For me, it smacks a bit of “White Man’s Burden” and I can’t imagine Brazilians are going to appreciate an American take on their internal affairs. Be interesting to see what the reviews are. Daldry may have bitten off a lot more than he can chew here.

    None of us anywhere truly gets used to this. Lol.

    Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. The Hours is overrated. The Reader is mediocre.

    I’m not looking forward to this.

    Still, actors in his films keep being nominated, as well as David Hare and his cinematographers. Somehow I dont see that trend suddenly ending here.

    I could be wrong but for once the premise doesnt strike me as manipulative or plain “stoopid”. Richard Curtis has been nominated before, and they do have a talented Brazilian with the screenplay team.

    Although I didn’t like the trailer (I basically got no idea what this was about, and maybe that’s right, maybe that’s what a trailer is supposed to do), Daldry is an AWARDS MAGNET (Every one of his movies have been nominated) and we should be aware of it.
