Dr. Louis Creed and his wife, Rachel, relocate from Boston to rural Maine with their two young children. The couple soon discover a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near their new home.
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM. - this streetwise fourteen-year-old foster kid can turn into the grown-up superhero Shazam.
So the fact that this movie came out in April means its chances of getting nominated for an Oscar are slim, which is tragic. I feel like this story about two people from completely different worlds that hate each other coming together through communication (with a slight push), is more insightful than what Greenbook
Sam Rockwell gave a stellar performance in this movie. I think it's similar to what Ed Norton did in American History X so long ago.
I loved Teraiji P. Hensen in this one as well. What a great combo of actors going on here.
It's a very uplifting and heart warming story, but at the same time it's real. Does not feel like magic happen, only understanding.
This should be what the academy is looking at.
