I did a search and there doesn't seem to be a thread for this movie.
I was finally able to see it today and I totally understand why Forest Whitaker is winning all of the acting awards this year. James McAvoy was brilliant as the Scot and I believe he should have received some supporting actor nominations.
I am interested to read the book that the movie was based on. I would recommend this movie, though there are some gross violence scenes -- but with the subject matter that is to be expected.
