Top Characters and People Brought Alive in 2014
There were a lot of amazing movies in 2014 if you ask Bruce Levenson and some were even better than the others because they revived certain characters in the minds of people. These characters were sometimes fictional and at other times, real people and some movies did a marvelous job in making them shine. The following are top characters and people brought alive in 2014 –
• Stephen Hawking – People who’ve seen ‘Hawking’ never thought they would love Eddie Redmayne’s ‘The Theory of Everything’ but they were wrong. This movie showed us Stephen Hawking in a way we have never seen him before.
• Maleficent – Not a lot of people knew the backstory of Disney’s most famous villain and were unaware about the beginnings of Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent. Thanks to this movie where Angelina Jolie made us cry, we finally understand the beauty of this now evil but once pure character.
• Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. – In Selma, this great man is made even more amazing than before, especially with David Oyelowo playing him. This movie is a must watch for every person who enjoys cinematic masterpieces.
Deserving an honorable mention is Timothy Spall’s J.M.W. Turner in ‘Mr. Turner’.
