This year was particularly good for British films, with many nominations and, thankfully, some wins as well.
While the Imitation game, the movie about a mathematician who worked to break Germany’s coded messages during World War 2 with the added complication of being a homosexual, was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama, but lost out to Boyhood, the story which follows the story of a boy growing up, played by the same actor from early childhood to college-entry age.
We did see the lead actor from The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne, win best actor in the awards, with the movie also taking Best Original Score as well. The movie is based upon the life of Stephen Hawking, following him through his early adult life where he meets and falls in love with his wife.
Both of these movies are great British films well worth watching. Numerous other films from around the world are also great experiences, with Boyhood, the big winner at the Golden Globes, being one of the best.
