Among the movies in the running for an Oscar, the best Jiu-Jitsu scene is in “Inception”.
But the best movie, among those indicated – and likely to win –, is “The King’s Speech”.
A film that may win over a lot of folks who prefer full-length action and violence (like “The Fighter”, “True Grit” or even “Black Swan”, which got a lot of tough guys into the theater to watch a ballet flick)…
… Is “The King’s Speech”, a film about two men giving their all. And that is always touching, no matter is we’re watching two athletes in the UFC, two players on the pitch or the King of England.
On the eve of the Oscar, GRACIEMAG.com picked some lessons from the main candidates and serves them up for you to savor below:
