“The man who changed everything”, 2011
“The Best Film” of 2012, according to the Oscars-distributor of the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, is difficult to argue with. The picture was taken from the book of the same name by Michael M. Lewis and tells about the unpromising Auckland baseball team, which has neither sponsors, nor money, nor normal offers.

The film, directed by Angelina Jolie, tells the real story of a promising athlete Louis Zamperini (Jack O'Connell), who participated in the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin. He had to go through a lot of difficulties on the way to success, but they only made him stronger. After the Olympics, he went to the front, then he had to survive on a raft with two other colleagues after the bomber crashed for a month and a half in the open ocean, then fight sharks, and then Louis was captured by the Japanese, where he was tortured. But breakdown is not about him. He is an athlete, that's why he does not fear any mockery of the Japanese ... The film turned out to be strong, albeit not without historical inaccuracies.
The Survivor, 2015
The same film for which Leo received his first and long-awaited Oscar. You can look at it at least for this: is it not motivation for the actor to play until he is celebrated with the most prestigious award, and persistently withstand previous defeats? Events in the film unfold in the XIX century in the north-west of America. Hunter Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) badly wounded in a fight with a bear.Hugh's pseudodrug, John Fitzgerald (gorgeous Tom Hardy), threw Glass to die alone in the forest, but he miscalculated ... The hunter not only survived, but also built in his head a cold-blooded plan of revenge, which he was certainly going to put into action. This, of course, should not be a motivation for you (that you need to survive only in order to take revenge on your enemies), but how he fought for his life, how he wanted to return home and how he overcame all difficulties was worthy of praise. you can learn and set an example.
