When it comes to awards for movies, any film about Jews or the Holocaust is bound to win in at least several categories.  Last night, the movie Son of Saul won an award for Best Foreign Film, but nothing else.  What a revolting development this is!

I have not seen the film because it has not yet played in the city where I live.  I will finally get to see it in February.
