Oscar hath delivered his nominations, which adds an injection of "best" awareness into the lineups at area multiplexes. Anticipating the surge of interest in so-called "art" or "niche" films, distributors consider the accumulation of Award nominations and wins in other competitions (Golden Globes, Director's Guild, Screen Actors Guilt, Producer's Guild, etc.) as increasing "must see" awareness.

 "Silver Linings Playbook" shifted to  wider release after receiving eight nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor Bradley Cooper , Best Actress Jennifer Lawrence , Best Supporting Actor Robert DeNiro,  Best Supporting Actress Jacki Weaver , Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Editing.

Filmed in Philadelphia, this new "must see" love story tells of a man and woman struggling through both a divorce and the death of a spouse discovering new confidence, compassion, empowerment, encouragement, and self-worth when the two flawed individuals committ to assist each other as friends.

A short summary of it follows:

Silver Linings Playbook:   A former high school teacher Pat Peoples (played by Bradley Cooper) returns to his parents’  custody following  years  in a mental   institution. Still suffering from a delusion his life is a movie produced by God and thus a happy climax is assured, he forms  a bond with  neighbor ( Jennifer Lawrence) who also suffers mental instabilities.   An NPR reporter succinctly  stated “the book made me smile.” The film scored five wins at the International Critics (Satellite Awards) ceremony in mid-December, including best film, best actor ,  best actress and best direction.

Other "niche" films garnering nominations include:

"Zero Dark Thirty" has captured five nominations, including a well deserved nod for Jessica Chastain. Although nominated for Best Picture, its director Kathryn ("The Hurt Locker") Bigelow did not receive a best director nomination.

 

Some popular "niche" films that may expand wide now include Amour (5) , Anna Karenina (4) , The Master (3) and Hitchcock (makeup), and The Impossible (Naomi Watts). Several of these are described below along with a few others that have been doing well on limited release.

Hitchcock:  Anthony Hopkins becomes  the legendary painfully articulate and vastly rotund director struggling with his wife (Helen Mirren) while pushing  societal , moral, ethical and professional  limits in the making of his horror classic, “Psycho.”

Movie 43
Movie 43

Hyde Park on the Hudson:  Bill Murray (as a cantankerous and adultery practicing  FDR) prepares to welcome the King and Queen of England for the first time to American soil.  

The Impossible:  Watch Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor holding on tight to their family following  a devastating  2004 tsunami, which contains a harrowing, jolting and evocative ten minute disaster  sequence. (slated for nationwide)
