Every year, there's always one film that screens at a fall festival and, overnight, becomes a major awards contender. In 2008, it was "Slumdog Millionaire," in 2009 it was "Up in the Air."

Having missed it at Toronto, we had one question going into the film's premiere at the London Film Festival on Thursday night: was the film that rarity, a classy period piece that connects with audiences and critics alike, or the kind of easy, older-skewing drama that connects with Academy voters because it's so IMPORTANT (see "The Reader").
