If anyone deserved the Academy Award for Best Actress this year, it would be the versatile Kate Winslet. And how great it was when she reserved that honour.
Her portrayal of the character Hanna in The Reader was superb and awe-inspiring. It was like looking at a different person and she made me connect with the character.
And then, there's the movie itself. What a great movie! I loved it beginning to end. Very engaging, intense and wow weren't those sex scenes delicately filmed!
So for those of you who have not watched The Reader, I would advice you to watch it. You won't regret it.
