If you have never seen this powerful 1993 Steven Spielberg masterpiece, Sundance is offering the opportunity this Wednesday. Plenty of seats are still available, and David and I will be seated in Row J, seats 8 and 9 if you would like to sit with us. We will get to the lobby of the theater about 6:45 PM for the 6:55 showing.
Spielberg won his first competitive Oscars for the powerful, documentary-style, 'historical' dramatization of Thomas Keneally's 1982 book (from a screenplay by Steven Zaillian) about the Third Reich's Holocaust, and the role of one complex man named Schindler (Liam Neeson) - a failed German industrialist and Catholic war profiteer (a pots-and-pans factory owner), who struggled to save more than a thousand Polish-Jewish lives in Nazi-occupied Poland with the assistance of Jewish accountant and confidante Itzhak Stern (Ben Kingsley).
Schindler's List was nominated for 12 Academy Awards and won 7 of them, including Best Picture and Best Director.
