The Blood Diamond: I am Hopeful

I am hopeful that The Blood Diamond could be a great film.

Director Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai, Glory) brings this interesting story due out in theaters December 15, 2006...just in time for award season.

The movie tells the story of two men(Leonardo DiCaprio and Djimon Hounsou) from very different backgrounds searching for a rare pink diamond. All this takes place during civil war in Sierra Leon during the 1990s.

Previous Academy Award nominees in the cast and crew of The Blood Diamond:

Could any of these people receive recognition for their role in this film??? Good cast, an issue film, with some technical standouts...I think so.

leo is a thoughtful young man. hopefully, he gets recognized in some capacity. i think he isn't too popular because he does put his money where his mouth is.

Exciting...I have a co-worker from Sierra Leon. Hopefully I can go see it with her & get her opinion.
