True stories dominate this year's competition
"Love and Other Drugs"
Pros: Stars Anne Hathaway, Jake Gyllenhall and director Ed Zwick all have Academy nominations in their back pockets. The last time Hathaway and Gyllenhaal were on screen together was in best picture nominee "Brokeback Mountain." The storyline has a significant dramatic and tearjerking turn not alluded to in the previews so far.
Cons: Zwick hasn't been in the best picture race for sometime and this may be more commercial fare than prestige.
