AT THE MOVIES #628 – DIVERSITY
Simon Morris looks back at the troubled Oscars, attacked from all quarters for its lack of diversity. But are the haters missing the point? He also looks at three undeniably diverse films. The lady in the van features the dream team of writer Alan Bennett and star Dame Maggie Smith. Gods of Egypt features a generally overlooked mythology. And the Oscar-winner for Best Foreign Film, Hungary’s Son of Saul achieves the impossible – a new look at the Nazi Holocaust.
