Keep in mind The Whistleblower

Here's a film and a performance to mark your calender for. It doesn't come out in theaters till August in America, but this film based on a true story, "Whistleblower" chronicles the trials of a female cop ( Weisz ) from Nebraska who serves as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and exposes a United Nations cover-up of a sex trafficking scandal.
The film is directed by Larysa Kodracki and also stars Vanessa Redgrave, David Strathairn, Monica Bellucci, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Anna Anissimova.
Sounds like Oscar-ish type of material for Weisz. Though she did win best supporting actress for The Constant Gardener in supporting actress, she has yet to earn an Oscar nomination for a leading role. This project seems like it may just be the performance where she receives attention in the female leading category for once.

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 !
