Django Unchained. Writer-director Quentin
Tarantino’s cinematic homage to epic
Westerns earned Academy Awards for his
original screenplay and Christoph Waltz as
Best Supporting Actor. Jamie Foxx plays the
titular Django (the D is silent), a slave whose
freedom is bought by dentist and bounty
hunter Dr. King Schultz (Waltz), who turns
Django into a bounty hunter as well. The two
ultimately go up against a ruthless plantation
owner (Leonardo DiCaprio) who is holding
Django’s wife captive. The film is high on violence and plays with historical accuracy the
Silver Linings Playbook. Based on the novel
of the same name, David O. Russell’s multi-award-winning film is a romantic comedy
with plenty of pathos. Patrizio Solitano Jr.
(Bradley Cooper), who has bipolar disorder,
is released from a mental-health facility after
eight months of treatment, having been hospitalized for beating his wife’s lover. He moves
in with his parents (Robert De Niro and Jacki
Weaver) and fights to prove that his mental
illness does not have to undermine his life.
Jennifer Lawrence (who won a Best Actress
Academy Award and Golden Globe for her
performance) plays Tiffany Maxwell, a recent
The Impossible. A family is on vacation at a
Thai resort when the 2004 tsunami hits. The
mother, badly injured, and one son are temporarily reunited, while the fate of the others
is unknown to them. Based on a true story,
the film is a gripping account of love and the
will to survive. Be prepared for a gut-wrench-ing, yet ultimately life-affirming, experience.
Naomi Watts, who plays the mother, was nominated for an Academy Award (among other
honors), and the film was nominated for and
won several awards. R (4/23)
