What the Press Would Say:

A remake has never looked so good as Martin Scorsese again looks prime to win his long awaited Oscar. Recent oscar winners Sean Penn and Reese Witherspoon develop a fascinating relationship as the two stars shine in two classic roles, although John C. Reilly steals the show as the exciting Father Barry. This Best Picture lock should open the door for more remakes to be made in the future.
