“The Reader”

“The Reader”, with Kate Winslett and Ralph Fiennes, is a wonderful, powerful movie, that poses some of the moral dilemmas faced by Germans in the years after World War II in ways not normally presented.  We have now seen all five of the Oscar best picture nominees.

I still go for Slumdog Millionaire, because of its extraordinary energy and cinematography.  But if it turns out to be The Reader, I wouldn’t be critical.  To me, the other three nominated films, Frost/Nixon, Benjamin Button, and Milk, are not in the same league.
