Jason watches The Reader

And now I've actually seen all the best picture nominees, just one day after the Oscars. Whatever.

Okay, The Reader is just as good as everyone says. A complicated, multi-faceted story about love (and underage sex, to boot), the Holocaust, the law, secrets, and how certain decisions haunt our lives forever. Kate Winslet earned her Oscar, and the rest of the cast was great, too. And the story takes enough turns I was rarely ahead of it (other than the big twist in the middle, which I don't think was supposed to be much of a surprise).

Okay, it's a general release movie, so I'm not holding myself to writing much about it. It's good, and I'll end with that.
