Squid and the Whale, The picture


"The Squid and the Whale," a low-budget drama about a family torn apart by divorce, led the list of contenders on Tuesday for the Independent Spirit A

The Independent Spirit Awards, the American art-house world's version of the Oscars, already reaches its 21st year. The event, which honors low-budget films based on such criteria as original, provocative subject matter and degree of independent financing, will announce its winners March 4 next year, the day before the Academy Awards.

Contenders for the award were announced Tuesday. Among them was the low-budget drama about a family torn apart by divorce "The Squid and the Whale." Led the nomination with six all at once, the flick obviously ahead of higher-profile entries, including "Capote" and "Good Night, and Good Luck" with four each.

Also scored four nominations was "Brokeback Mountain," a drama flick about forbidden love between two cowboys, and "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada," about friendship and justice amid tensions on the Mexico-Texas border.
