Oscar Loves Theater Stage Movies

 

"My favorite movie about the theater is ALL ABOUT EVE, but then again that movie is my favorite movie about everything about movies and love and lust and life itself." - Jay

"TOPSY-TURVY perfectly captures the feeling of imminent failure that you get when you're in rehearsals." - Peggy

Oscar hasn't caught the Dardennes bug but Cotillard could help. Then again it might feel slight to them since they often like huge scope
People are really impressed with this one. It could surprise.
Oscar loves old person / young person paired dramas in this category and bonus points: the film about a teacher and troubled student  is very good and it lingers emotionally
A major hit at the arthouse and a potential winner. Stands out from the crowd for brevity, impact and aesthetic
The people who've seen this war time drama about a farmer and a wounded man seem to be very very fond of it.

Other Possibilities?
