This Month in NYC: Movieline and 92YTribeca Look Back Before They Were Nominated

Are you in New York? Do you have reliable winter clothes and maybe an ice pick that will aid travel in and around the city? if so, guess who's in luck? You have the rare opportunity to reflect on the work of Oscar darlings Natalie Portman, Jesse Eisenberg, Danny Boyle and David O. Russell (among others) in 92YTribeca's awesome new series Before They Were Nominated.
