Yesterday, the second trailer for Ammonite dropped.
Up until a few months ago, Ammonite was getting a lot of buzz as a possible best picture nominee. That buzz has died down a bit and it seems like, whenever I read anything about the Oscar race, Ammonite is kind of getting overshadowed by the acclaim that’s greeted Nomadland and One Night In Miami. One thing that I’ve repeatedly seen is people who have seen the film saying that it doesn’t quite work but that’s it’s beautifully acted by Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan. Probably not coincidentally, Winslet and Ronan are both still very much a part of the current Oscar speculation even if Ammonite is no longer the Best Picture favorite that it once was.
Myself, I’m still looking forward to seeing the film. Winslet is one of the greatest actress of her generation and Ronan is one of the greatest of her’s. Anything that brings these two together should be worth watching.
