Oscar 2007 : the Stories
There were many good stories in film this year. Pirates, superheroes, royalty, infidelity, family, soldiers and history, it was quite the potpourri. I have trouble writing, so I have the utmost respect for those who do it well. All of the nominees for Best Original Screenplay are Oscar- worthy, but Little Miss Sunshine won my heart. It pokes fun so tactfully, the satire so subtle, the characters so endearing. Little Children would get the statue from me for Best Adapted Screenplay. Themes of infidelity and tolerance get provocative treatment, with a wow of an ending.
