in the edition number 95 of the Oscar awards, there are six feature films competing among the nominees this Sunday and they are based on true events. Which are?
1. Argentina, 1985
Of course, the first nominee is the film directed by Santiago Mitre, “Argentina, 1985” which represents the entire country tonight at the awards ceremony.
The film deals with the trial of the military juntas, one of the great milestones in Argentine history and is competing to win the Oscar for best foreign film. In 1985, two years after the first democratic elections after a military dictatorship, a team of lawyers confronted those accused of war crimes: among them, the dictator Jorge Rafael Videla.
Blonde is based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates and tries to reflect the life of one of the best-known Hollywood icons, Marilyn Monroe played by Ana de Armas.
3. They talk
The only director nominated for an Oscar in the Best Picture category, Sarah Poley, brought the story of the women of a Mennonite community in Bolivia to the big screen.
Ellas hablan narrates how between 2005 and 2009, seven men systematically raped more than 150 women from their community – and of all ages – after using an anesthetic for cows.
4. Top Gun: Maverick
Almost 40 years after the premiere of the movie Top Gun, its sequel arrives at the Oscars with six nominations. With Tom Cruise again as the protagonist, Top Gun: Maverick continues the story of the student, but this time he has become a teacher.
The name of the tape is not random, but is inspired by a real unit of the US Army. Specifically, Top Gun is the nickname for the United States Army Combat Tactics Instructor Course.
The biopic of the King of Rock’n’Roll is up for eight statuettes, including best film and best actor with Austin Butler as a nominee, who plays Elvis Presley. The film shows how the singer’s childhood and adolescence were marked by the black community and the relationship he had with it.
6. All Quiet on the Front
With nine nominations, including best film, All Quiet on the Front is the latest adaptation of the novel by Erich Maria Remarque, available on Netflix, tells the story of a young soldier who, during the First World War, decides to enroll with his friends as a volunteer to fight with the German army.
Once at the front, they realize that the routine of the “German iron youth” is not as idyllic as they imagined, but that the conditions they face will leave their mark for life.
