I must say that Christian Bale was my favourite actor in the film; his performance was amazing. I wasn’t very familiar with the plot going into the theatre, however, I had heard it was really good. My expectations were met, it was great. Christian Bale won the National Board of Review Award for Best Supporting Actor. The film was also nominated for six Golden Globe Awards. Best Picture (Drama), Best Actor (Drama) for Wahlberg, Best Supporting Actress for Leo and Adams, Best Supporting Actor for Bale, and a nomination for Best Director for Russell.
If you have a chance, check out the film. Comment and let me know what you saw over the holiday break!
