Happy 25 to Anthony Minghella's gorgeous Best-Picture-winning epic, released into limited release on this day in 1996. I feel like this movie was hated for a long time but that people have maybe come around on it some? It definitely got some awards behemoth backlash. Anyway those people were always wrong -- I've loved it since Day One (and I re-watched it a few months ago and it entirely holds up) and I have never understood how anybody could spend any time hating on a film that got Juliette f'ing Binoche an Oscar. Whenever I remember that our greatest living actress has an Oscar I hate the Oscars just a little bit less.
