Most Important Academy Award

Smile Pinki is an Academy Award nominee for this years Best Short Documentary. It's the story of a young girl in southern India born with a cleft palate and the work of surgeons from Smile Train who repair her face.

Although I haven't seen it or any Oscar nominated film (I haven't been in a movie theater in years), its hard to imagine any other movie having more of an impact on the real world.

What about Benjamin Button? It looks like a powerful film!

My word is prahaps. Prahaps you're right. I also have much respect for the Doctors Without Borders org. (I saw a couple of the movies this year; nothing of note.)

I read something recently about this little girl. I haven't seen the film either but would really like to.
I have a camera-related question and was wondering if I could email you? our address is: ourownrooney@gmail.com
