I have been on the record with my support of McConaughey for the Oscar since I saw this movie. Who else is on deck for this one? Robert De Niro? Philip Seymour Hoffman? That's nice. It's McConaughey's year.
Sitting in a packed theater, watching the re-enactment of a story that occurred over 30 years ago, I couldn't help but feel it was happening now. And, judging by the reactions of the people around me, I wasn't alone.
