I'm surprised there's no thread for this yet as I keep hearing Oscar buzz. AND it has George Clooney! We went last night and both really enjoyed it. Very well done, not just George's work, but all the minor actors as well...there are actually a lot of women in the film and they were all very good. And I think I saw "Dell" from Private Practice in a minor role.
A number of reviews have said this is Clooney's best work yet, and I'd have to agree. (Although one local reviewer said he was better as the cartoon Mr. Fox, and meant it as a compliment!)
This is a good film to take thoughtful teens to... makes you really think about what you want out of life. But, obviously, also very good for "grown ups".
