Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport.
PRO: Holocaust movies pretty much own this category.
CON: Haven't we seen this fictionalized already? Au revoir, freshness . . .
PRO: Courageous story; family hamstrung by generations in a housing project struggles to find a way out.
CON: Film stars neither Richard Dreyfus nor Meryl Streep.
Long Night's Journey Into Day
PRO: Second nomination for both filmmakers; coolness of film made partly in Xhosa; race relations in South Africa trump race relations in the U.S.
CON: Hollywood has learned the hard way not to be big on commissions with Orwellian-sounding names.
Scottsboro: An American Tragedy
PRO: Fitness of story to form; "the unjust trial" is pretty much a movie-making staple.
CON: Story contains endless backing-and-forthing; possible discomfort with the whole "Jew money from New York" angle.
Sound and Fury
PRO:Miracle surgery always a good Hollywood movie topic.
CON: Relatively light subject matter for category; signifies nothing.
