This was an amazing and interesting movie. Gibson and Penn portrayed their characters very well, and it is a movie definitely worth seeing! It is original and well written. More movies like this should be made instead of just showing superficial movies. The movie is based on real men who made an amazing contribution to humankind. People like that, who dedicated their lives to contrubuting something to world, should have their stories told more ofte . This movie, and similar types of movies, deserve more recognition and awards than shallow, heartless, and brainless movies which only want to sell sex, action, a brend, or a specific actor/actress.
Fantastic job, worth seeing 👏👏👏

'Watch then and be amazed!'

Oxford! Oxford! Oxford! Finally, the true story behind the creation of the only authoritative dictionary in the English language, gets a well-deserved and well-executed cinematic rendition, for generations to come; to behold and treasure, just as much as we treasure the Oxford dictionary!

Learn something, ye arrogant Yankees! Buy an Oxford dictionary, abandon your ways of folly and learn the language in all its glory! Enough is enough! Bring back COLOUR to your world!
