Emma Thompson (one of my favorite actresses) won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.
This movie from 1995 was nominated for several Oscars and was directed by the very talented Ang Lee. I went to see the movie with co-workers and at the end we all were in tears. Even my intense co-worker who cursed so much she made Christian Bale's rant seem like an out take from Sesame Street.
Here is the trailer. Have a great weekend.
