I haven’t watched a whole lot of movies recently. I don’t even know what most of them are about. I certainly didn’t watch the Academy Awards. However, it seems to be all people have been talking about on Facebook, so I gotta ask…why’d a movie about Robert Franklin Stroud win best picture?
I wasn’t even aware that there was such a movie out in the last year. I know there was at least one in 1962, but I didn’t think recent. He was a very well known prisoner, and perhaps a great example of rehabilitation in prison, but it kind of surprised me that a movie about him would get the oscar.
I guess I don’t pay enough attention to current movies, or what selection criteria the academy is using. It just surprised me, though.
