Now that the single most over-bloated, obscenely funded, self aggrandising award ceremony involving wealthy people who pretend for a living is finally over, the one highlight which seems to be still running, (excuse the pun), is Angelina Jolie’s leg and it’s magical appearance last night.
Never ones to rest on their laurels the Internet community got straight to work as a flood of memes were created and a Twitter account was set up in honour of the great lady’s right peg.
There’s quite a buzz online for this Belgian film after it was Oscar nominated in the Best Foreign Film category last month. Variety have gone so far to describe Mattias Schoenaerts as having: “A career-defining, powerfully physical lead performance.”
The plot rattles long like so:
Domineering cattle farmer Jacky (Mattias Schoenaerts), constantly pumped on steroids, initiates a shady deal with a notorious meat trader. When a federal agent is assassinated and a woman from his traumatic past resurfaces, Jacky must confront his demons and face the far-reaching consequences of his decisions.
Think Bronson with a straw hat and a pitchfork.
