I'd like to think that 'Far From Heaven' would have made the cut had the Academy expanded its lineup, but it was a slightly more competitive year. I suppose its possible that the Academy would have cited 'Road to Perdition', 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding,' 'Talk to Her,' and 'Adaptation' and left one slot for Todd Haynes' beloved film...but after the inexplicable shutout of 'Carol,' I just don't think it makes sense to bet on him making the cut. My friend just saw 'Wonderstruck' and thinks it's easily his least impressive film.

Wonderstruck reviews

Precious Doll already posted one of these reviews in the Cannes thread, but, since there's a chance Wonderstruck will be a factor later in the year, I thought it deserved its own thread.

Not the universal praise Carol received, but mostly a solid response, and the possibility that, like with Hugo, the subject matter will attract more Academy support. Even though, with Haynes films, you usually bet the under for Oscars.
