Every year the Academy honors five films in the Best Foreign Film category, and in a genre that's already tough to market, an Oscar boost is a blessing for many films that would otherwise face a much tougher road to finding an audience. However, what people often forget is that those five nominees are whittled down from dozens and dozens of submissions from nations around the world and the reality is, most of those films don't see a release on our shores. While Belgium's entry "Illégal" didn't make the cut, the film by Olivier Masset-Depasse is getting a release and the subject matter will strike close to home.
