Screen Talk: More Oscar Possibilities from Sarajevo to New York and Toronto

Screen Talk: More Oscar Possibilities from Sarajevo to New York and Toronto

In this week’s Screen Talk, IW’s Eric Kohn and I explore the possible awards contenders, from two films I caught at the recent Sarajevo Film Festival– Andrew Haigh’s “45 Years” and Brazilian filmmaker Anna Muylaert’s “The Second Mother”– to new fal entries unveiling up at festivals in Telluride, Toronto and New York.

Will Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies” have the right stuff, or journalism expose “Truth,” starring Cate Blanchett as Mary Mapes and Robert Redford as Dan Rather, or David Gordon Green’s “Our Brand Is Crisis,” starring Sandra Bullock in a provocative political role, or “I Saw the Light,” a biopic starring Tom Hiddleston as country music star Hank Williams? 

Among movies that have already opened, Eric thinks Aardman’s “Shaun the Sheep” has a shot in the animated Oscar race, while Anne argues that comedy “Grandma” is more a Golden Globe than Oscar contender, even if Lily Tomlin is beloved by the older Academy demo.
