On Lisbon Theaters (3)

«There Will Be Blood» is a movie now playing on Lisbon theaters, but that I have not seen yet. In his ruthless pursuit of wealth, misanthropic oilman Daniel Plainview tricks a local farmer into signing away his valuable drilling rights and rejects his own son, H.W., when the boy loses his hearing in an accident. As he becomes increasingly isolated and unstable, Daniel places his trust in a vagrant claiming to be his half-brother, and finds his position unsettled by H.W.'s return and the growing popularity of the farmer's son, now an evangelical preacher. This film had the following 8 Oscar Nominations (click to view at the official site):
  1. [Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role]
  2. [Achievement in Art Direction]
  3. [Achievement in Cinematography]
  4. [Achievement in Directing]
  5. [Achievement in Film Editing]
  6. [Best Motion Picture of the Year]
  7. [Achievement in Sound Editing]
  8. [Adapted Screenplay]
