I bought this a few years ago, after I saw it. This movie is HUGE in every definition of that word. The scope. the scenery, the ENORMOUS story which does NOT become a mere soap opera!
And the musical score!!!! magnificent in every way. Too beautiful to describe.
And here, in this movie, Brad Pitt's star quality shows. I had never paid much attention to him...and now definitely not. BUT...in the movie that will remain with you for days on end....unforgettably fortelling.
I don't know if this movie received any awards....but I would give it everyaward possible.
If anyone hasn't seen it....do yourself a favor and do so.
It does not wrap up in a lovely bow. It is realistic.
