EXCELLENT - Deserving of any award it recieves. This movie is brought to life by the acting of some great kids and brings life in the poorer contries or areas of foreign countries to life. We cannot begin to understand what life is like there. The brothers story is wonderful -- I would encourage everyone to see this movie and on my list of must sees I think this ties with MILK for my favorate movies of the year.

Meryl Streep of course was wonderful - What a wonderful contrast and show of her range of expertise - comparing this role to her fun loving role in Mamma Mia (another must see) I never get enough of her!
Philip Seymour Hoffman has just he edge the character needs to keep your preconceived notions in check and keeps you questioning what is truly going on.
Viola Davis - gets a nod because of your short role as the parent to the boy. Truly acting the struggle of a parent with a child who has struggles with his sexuality. (or is that a preconceived notion on my part?? )
And last but not least Amy Adams -- I believe she will become one of my favorite actresses as she continues to give a variety of different characters life. In the film she plays a quirky - new to the school nun. Trying to find her identity and yet she is not above your preconceived notions. I cannot wait to see what is next for Amy Adams
