Oscar chances ? Looking very promising mostly for Mulligan in the Actress category. Virtually every Oscar prognosticator is predicting a nomination for her. Many think that it could also get nods for Picture, Supporting Actor, Screenplay and Costumes as well.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
