Kate Winslet seduces underage boys and may be a Nazi death camp warden for children. THE READER has a trailer!!!

Hey everyone. Capone in Chicago here. THE READER is most definitely on the end-of-the-year radar as far as awards consideration goes. In fact, there's talk that its star, Kate Winslet, might get both a Best Actress Oscar nomination for REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, and a Best Supporting Actress nod for this film. I'm always rooting for Kate, who has never actually won an Oscar before. She's mesmerizing to look upon, she's smart, great at selecting worthy roles, and has a great sense of humor about her career and image. And then we get Ralph Fiennes as the grown-up version of the young man that Winslet apparently beds repeatedly in this movie before being arrested years later for being a Nazi war criminal who decided who lived and who died among the children at a concentration camp. Yikes! The film comes courtesy of director Stephen Daldry (THE HOURS; BILLY ELLIOT) from a screenplay adapted (from Bernhard Schlink's novel) by award-winning playwright David Hare, who also adapted THE HOURS. Check out THE READER trailer right HERE!!! -- Capone

    Kid she was fucking turned 18 on July 4th. If he was a she and she was he. Outside of that, age appears to be beating her upside the head with some serious ugly.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:01 p.m. CST

    I second Winslet deserving an Oscar

    by roberthorry

    The film looks pretty good. Doesn't look like Ralph gets much screentime judging from the trailer.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:01 p.m. CST

    Loved that Evil Bitch face she sported when she


    lost the Titanic Oscar to that Good As it gets Bitch Helen Hunt. Priceless! I wonder if thats on youtube? You know why Hunt won that shit. The rain scene...

    The Wrestler Trailer is up on Apple...

    by Gil Brooks

    ...more importantly.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:04 p.m. CST

    Yeah Gil!!!!


    Fuck yeah! Thanks for the heads up on that one man!

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:06 p.m. CST

    Hunt won the Oscar 'cause she was the only American

    by Pennsy

    in the category. Plain and simple, IMO.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:07 p.m. CST

    Reminded me of "Extras"

    by buffywrestling

    and Kate's bit about oscar winning when I read the title of the TB, so now I feel kinda guilty about laughing at WWII.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:15 p.m. CST

    This trailer was up days ago.

    by Droid

    Winslet needs to do a comedy. She can be funny (said extras). At least something light hearted. Too many slash your wrists flicks from her.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:21 p.m. CST

    you mean like THE HOLIDAY

    by Leafy McPlantsalot

    .... damn you Norah Efron!

    by JestaFool

    Looks crazy!!

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:23 p.m. CST

    Look anyone who thinks they deserve it doesn't


    I remember her face when she lost. You saw the ego front and fucking center. <P> That is the one thing I'll never understand about the celebrities. <P> You know theres lots of us here on earth who just want the chance to be something to someone. Not for the money or the fame or the recognition. To feel a sense of self worth and accomplishment. To know that all the work and the effort we put in everyday trying to be that something. to finally see it get us there. <P> Immensely Humble and Content in tears, cause you just can't believe you actually got in that it actually happened. <P> Those are the people who deserve that thing. And they would never cry about not winning it. Just to be nominated for it is an honor!!! One of the greatest you can get.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:26 p.m. CST

    You're mixed up on the possible nominations

    by Greenleaf1

    She's being promoted as supporting for "The Reader" and leading for "Revolutionary Road," not the other way around.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:26 p.m. CST

    Oh man, THAT'S what it's about?

    by epitone

    I thought it was a romantic comedy about a story editor at Sony.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:27 p.m. CST

    No Leafy...

    by Droid

    I mean something where i don't feel ass-raped by a sobbing Jude Law. Even something like a "caper" flick. I don't know. Just something other than these fucking "important" flicks.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:29 p.m. CST

    I think they are making Kate look ugly

    by BillEmic

    for aesthetic reasons. This is a kind of drab and gloomy movie, so nobody is being made up to look like movie stars. Kate and Ralph look pretty fucking beat down, and I think it's for a reason, not just age. Then again, I could be wrong. Age does suck.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:36 p.m. CST

    What if...

    by Leafy McPlantsalot

    She did a caper flick, but you still felt ass raped by jude law after?The caper would be set during the Korean War of course, so that it wouldn't feel too important.

    I Want My 'Wrestler' Talkback

    by roberthorry


  • Nov. 20, 2008, 6:58 p.m. CST

    They should set it during the current fucking war...

    by Droid

    then it really wouldn't feel important. They could call it Three Queens, cast Jude Law and Ian McKellen. That way the ass raping feels justified, you know, in keeping with the story.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 7:03 p.m. CST

    "Extras" could screw her out of an Oscar for this

    by catlettuce4

    If enough voters remember the scene with her bit about how the only reason to do a Holocaust movie was for the Oscar they might say "fuck you."

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 7:05 p.m. CST


    by Droid

    her reactions right at the end...<p>

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 7:12 p.m. CST


    by buffywrestling

    Actually, presuming her performance is indeed "oscar-worthy", that bit on "Extras" might give her a nudge of an advantage. Because Hollywood is fucked up like that.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 7:16 p.m. CST

    The book was engrossing when I read it as a 15 year old

    by The Grug

    From the trailer it looks like the film could actually do it justice.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 7:23 p.m. CST

    The Reader trailer has been out since at least last week. It looks good, but the real cool news is that The Wrestler trailer is now on Check it out!

    I doubt you'll amount to much if you keep on writing that sort of invidious drivel.

    It doesn't matter anyways

    because Avatar will be fucking our eyeballs in 2009.

    Kate Winslet?

    by one9deuce

    Does she whip them out? That's what I want to know. <p> Kate is unbelievably talented and deserves all the recognition she gets.

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 10:19 p.m. CST

    I'm beginning to question everything I know

    by thebearovingian

    b/c that trailer told me that everything I know may be wrong. How can I wake up tomorrow and face another day?

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 10:23 p.m. CST

    Augh. Just give Winslet the Oscar now so she'll take a break from all these depressing movies.

    The Wrestler

    by angel_svn

    Just saw the trailer on Apple to The Wrestler, and it blew me away ... I was on the verge of tears just from watching the trailer! I know this isn't the right forum, but up yours!

  • Nov. 20, 2008, 10:59 p.m. CST

    Way to go

    by geemenblue

    This trailer was out like three weeks ago. I love you guys, but when you miss something, don't pretend like it's breaking news weeks later.

    When does it come out? I need a good cry - and not because J.J. is raping my childhood.

    No Winslet nipples, no interest. Sorry.

    Winslet is my Favorite Actress

    by grievenom

    She'll get her due eventually, if not for this.

    Just watched that other youtube bit on Kate and

    by GQtaste

    it was not at all what some of you said. She didn't do anything wrong. Talk about nitpicking.

  • Nov. 21, 2008, 3:41 a.m. CST

    It will make you question EVERYTHING you believe

    according to the trailer. The Earth really isn't round??

    Kross was 18 when they filmed the love scenes. Filming actually went on hiatus to wait for his birthday.

    Where are the German accents of Fiennes and Winslet?

    by Wile-E

    Just kidding.. I was actually wondering, when the first idiot would ask that question. Other than that, I think the trailer looks nice and David Kross (the younger version of Fiennes) looks like he acts better in this one than he did in "Krabat". Reading these talkbacks I get really disgusted. I thought this is a site for movie lovers. Why do people always only walk about if you can see an actor or an actress naked in a movie? Are you all just kids in puberty?

  • Nov. 21, 2008, 11:49 a.m. CST

    Beautiful woman she is

    And yes, as gorgeous and great an actress she is, she does get her funbags out for the lads again in this film. Nips n' all.
