In my honest opinion, I don’t know why Decaprio won an Oscar for this movie rather than all the other amazing movies that he’s previously acted in, such as Titanic, or the Aviator.

He also was familiar with the original book which gave him a connection however, he had to make the book focus more on the story book plot and take out some of the background stories of the characters to shorten the movie. This makes him an adaptable director. Reiner was not the only candidate for the job of director for this film however, he was decidedly the best choice due to his recent breakthrough to film directing through recent movies he had directed because he had done so well.
