Philip Pullman once said: “After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
And if a story is based on truth, the more we connect with it.
The 88th annual academy awards are coming up this Sunday Feb. 28th with 7 films nominated for best picture, 4 of them based on true events including, “The Revenant,” “The Big Short,” “Bridge of Spies,” and “Spotlight.”
1.) Leonardo Dicaprio (right) plays 19th century bear trapper Hugh Glass (left) in new film ‘The Revenant.’
2.) The character of Mark Baum (left) based on the real life outspoken hedge fund manager Steve Eisman, who is played by Steve Carell in ‘The Big Short.’ Eisman was known for short-selling subprime home mortgages, and being hugely successful. Michael Burry (middle), one of the first investors in the world to recognize and invest in the impending subprime mortgage crisis, is portrayed by Academy Award-winning British actor Christian Bale. Ryan Gosling plays Greg Lippmann, a slick Deutsche Bank trader (he also gives some interstitial, direct-to-camera informative narration).
