From the producer of Black Book comes a beautifully crafted Dutch coming-of-age drama directed by Martin Koolhoven and starring Jamie Campbell Bower (Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, The Twilight Saga: New Moon). The film follows a young boy who becomes involved with the Dutch resistance after he helps a wounded British soldier during the final winter of World War II.

So, there might be more than one Twilight series star at the Academy Awards this year. All along, it’s been a supposition here that Anna Kendrick and her film Up In The Air would be the Twilight series’ connection to the Oscars, but, apparently, Jamie Campbell Bower and his 2008 film Oorlogswinter (translated to Winter In Wartime) is already on the short list for Oscar contention.
Winter In Wartime is shortlisted, according to a recent press release, in the category for “Foreign Language Film.” It sits alongside eight others upon the short list – a dramatic jump from the sixty-five originally in contention.
The film’s director, Martin Koolhoven, issued a twitter message to Bower about the listing, saying “Yo Jamie. We’re on the shortlist.”
Bower was present with Koolhoven at the Rome Film Festival, where the film received “Best Film in the ‘Alice nella Citta’ selection.”
The film’s synposis is as follows: January 1945. During the last winter of World War II , Nazi occupied Holland lies under a blanket of snow. Living in a village near the town of Zwolle is 13 year old Michiel. Defiant in his hatred for the Nazis, he is eager to do something for the growing underground Resistance. Michiel’s chance to prove himself arrives when neighbor Dirk asks him to deliver an envelope on behalf of the Resistance. Soon Michiel discovers how precious trust is and how close together good and evil can sit side by side without anyone ever noticing. He also learns that to become a man, he must abandon childish beliefs and face the truth head on.
More information about the picture is available here. Note that formal nominations for the 82nd annual Academy Awards will be issued Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010, at 5:30 a.m. PT in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.
