Oscar chances ? Pretty decent for picture, and Lesley Manville won the National Board Of Review for Best Actress, so she may have a chance in one of the actress categories. Screenplay has an outside chance 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 !
