It is nominated for numerous Academy awards including Best Picture and Best Actor for Bradley Cooper
Clint Eastwood does a great job directing this movie, I would say this is the best movie he has directed so far.Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller are really well cast as Chris Kyle and his wife Taya Kyle.

Bradley Cooper does a fantastic job as Chris Kyle and definitly deserves the Best Actor nomination. He does a good job showing the difficulty soldiers go through when the return home, and have to re-adjust to civilian life. There is one scene in particular that shows that Chris is having difficultly re-adjusting. That is the BBQ scene.
Sienna Miller also give a brilliant performance, each of her scenes are fantastic. Her performance may not be getting as much attention as . You can see she is really concerned about her him, especially in the scene when they are talking on the phone during one of his tours.

This is an excellent movie. I highly recommend seeing it!!
